Monday's Picture!


[Give this picture it's best caption! Either come up with a unique/fun caption for this picture or tell what you think is going on in the picture! Tomorrow I'll pick the best response! LEAVE A COMMENT (anyone can leave a comment, you don't have to have a blog)! I don't care if you're someone I don't know, someone I do know, or someone I'm not suppose to know that reads my blog all the time (secretly of course...HA!) Have fun!]

The passengers are all seated and buckled in. The last people to board are two men dressed in Pilots' uniforms who start up the aisle. Both are wearing dark glasses, one is using a guide dog and the other is tapping his way along the aisle with a cane. Nervous laughter spreads through the cabin, but the men enter the cockpit, the door closes, and the engines start up. The passengers begin glancing nervously around, searching for some sign that this is just a little practical joke. None is forthcoming. The plane moves faster and faster down the runway, and the people sitting in the window seats realize they're headed straight for the water at the edge of the airport. As it begins to look as though the plane will plough into the water, panicked screams fill the cabin. At that moment, the plane lifts smoothly into the air. The passengers relax and laugh a little sheepishly, and soon all retreat into their magazines, secure in the knowledge that the
plane is in good hands. In the cockpit, one of the blind pilots turns to the other and says, "You know, Bob, one of these days, they're gonna scream too late and
we're all gonna die." This was the plan. It worked up until now. This time the passengers screamed too late.

Little yellow boat: "They've gotta be crazy if they think lil ole me is gonna tug that big ole clunker to shore!"

Holly said...

Titanic: Airplane Style -- "The boat was too late. Jack and Rose were already gone... swallowed up by the unforgiving icy waters of Lake Weatherford. If only they had noticed they had noticed the shoreline just 300 feet ahead of them -- if only."

Holly said...

Bad idea #127: A submarine camouflaged as an airplane.

(To Pilot): I told you we needed more fuel!

(Last summer, I had someone in my town land a plane in a lake - he ran out of gas on the way home from Fargo MN. The township had to send out an emergency hovercraft to pick the fool out of the lake. So not only did his plane get ruined, he got a $15,000+ rescue bill from my town.)

NOTE FROM THE PUBLISHER: Due to the ENORMOUS amount of GREAT responses, I have decided I am not capable of choosing the best caption alone this week, so I am going to let my co-worker at work decide, so I'll have the results posted tomorrow morning (Tuesday) sometime, most likely before lunch. This is good too, because she doesn't know you people and can't be accused of playing favorites (plus I'm not even going to let her see y'all's names...just reading them to her! ;)

Soooo...keep the captions coming until tomorrow morning!

Would you believe it...this post produced a record breaking number of visitors for me in one day! I'm currently at 52 visitors just today! Y'all rock!

Some water to wash down those airline peanuts?

Wow! I was blown away by the number of responses this week! Not only was there a LOT, but they were all so good! And to think I was a little worried when I chose this picture, thinking captions might be hard to come up with. ;)

Anyways, after a co-worker and myself gave each of y’alls responses a point value between 1-10 and the combined scores were totaled, we have a “winner” and a two-way tie for second place (since they were only one point less than the winner).

Second place…
A tie between Lindsay’s story, “The passengers are all…” (which was freakin’ HILAROUS! Lindsay, I don’t know WHERE you came up with that one at! HA! And Chris’ “Some water to wash…” Very nicely done! ;)

Overall best caption goes too…
Nicole’s “I’ve fallen and I can’t get up.”
HA!!! HA!!!! HA!!! HA!!! HA!!!

Way to go everyone! Thanks again, and I can’t wait till next weeks! See ya then! ;)

Kim, My caption was actually an email that my grandma in Abilene forwarded to me. She likes to forward things. A LOT. I had just read it on Friday, and on Monday when I saw the picture, it just went perfectly with it. So I added the last three sentences to make it fit the picture. It was just such a funny story. So while I wish I had written it myself, I cannot take all of the credit. But it is a really funny story that my coworkers enjoyed too, as we deal with airplanes. I hope everyone got a good laugh, because the thought of blind pilots drives me crazy.

Thanks for best caption honor!

I actually read them all to my Mom and sister last night and they really liked Lindsay's blind pilot story and Holly's version of Titanic. These were some of the funniest captions I've seen since I started posting.
