I was once passing through some First Nations territory up on the Trans-Canada, and I pulled over for lunch. I asked an old bloke sitting next to me about all the little piles of rocks you see every mile or two, piled up like on a Jewish gravestone. He began: "the life on the reservations here is bleak. The education is terrible, there are no jobs, it is very hard on our young people, they miss the old ways".
I asked: "so these piles of rocks are exhortations to their gods, or a lamentation on times when they were masters of the land?"
"No", he replied, "there's just nothing to do in the afternoons, no school, no work, they're bored. They pile up those stupid rocks just to kill time. Next time they take that bend in some friend's pick-up, they can say "hey, there's the pile I made on Tuesday."
Anyway, the first caption that came to mind was "I'm bored", but that's only funny to me.
