Caption Competition - sarcasm recommended

Rough Guides is in PR overload as it pushes its new guidebook to England.

Press release blurb:

...in a country where “queuing remains a national pastime” the Rough Guide says there’s one thing that unites the nation: “their sense of humour”.

“The English are devoted to sarcasm on a gigantic scale.”
Well let's see how devoted we are - and readers in other countries, of course - to the lowest form of wit (but the highest form of humour) with a caption to go alongside this picture of Kayak co-founder and CEO, Steve Hafner, at the Travolution Summit a few weeks back.

There was this one time...at "Kayak camp"...where I dreamt about crushing in my hands Google and Expedia together.

As he looked around the room, Mr Hafner inwardly swore vengeance on whoever it was who told him to imagine his audience naked.
