Cartoon Caption Contest Results

Our November Cartoon Caption Contest was fun and we received many entries from around the world.  A panel of nine judges (speakers and improv players) picked the top entries.  Our Acme Air cartoon was created by our talented cartoonist Dan Rosandich. 

Here are the top captions:



Sir, I need photo identification with you clothed.
     Les Harden, Brisbane, Australia


Don’t worry sir…95% of our passengers arrive at their destination safely every day.
     Ken VanDrese, Escanaba, Michigan, USA


I need your name, address, and next of kin.
     Gary Bachman, Hagerstown, Maryland, USA

HONORABLE MENTION (in random order)

What’s wrong? Never felt a cattle prod before?
I heard you had extra leg room, so I brought along my extra leg.
The under-inflated ego support group? 2nd door on the right.
Oh my! We don’t fly to Flasherville.
Please remove your nipple rings sir and step thru the X-ray again.
Sorry for the delay…Our mechanic is working late at the carnival.
A cheap ticket?  You’re in luck, we have a wing seat left.
You brought the replacement navigation system?  But that plane just left!
Sir, 3A is both a window seat and an aisle seat.  It’s a small plane.
Tickets please. Your hypnosis is not working.
Our pilot liked our tag line, “Always Ahead”, so much that he took off ahead of time. 
No refunds on travel insurance, after you’ve flown.
Our pilot didn’t really crash…he backed into a mountain.
Parachute or not, it’s excess luggage.
Sir, a ticket takes you where your charm can’t.
I’m sorry sir, you and your cat will have to fly coach.  Only coyotes are permitted in First Class.
Yes, Mr Smart, we left a message on your answering shoe that your flight has been cancelled.
Your pilot will be Captain Roadrunner and your lead flight attendant will be Wile E Coyote.
Fly Akme Air where stare-down contests are our way of saying thank you.
You’re looking forward to a flight with a good meal followed by a relaxing cigarette!  When was the last time you traveled with us?
