Caption the NextBus Sign Malfunction
Am I the only one who always asks, “Why didn’t I think of that?” after reading the New Yorker cartoon caption contest week after week?
Well, I hereby commence the NextBus Caption Contest, which is a lot less elitist and won’t make you feel bad at all. Thanks to Muni’s malfunctions, we’ve received more than a few pictures of NextBus signs begging for a line, like the one above from Jeff D at Spots Unknown
Along with the photos, several of you also sent in some suggested captions:
“SOS…SOS…SOS…SOS…SOS” – Daishin from a previous post
“Dear Muni, maybe switch back to the Roman alphabet now?” – Jeff D., who wonders if the sign is in Morse code.
“7 minutes…just kidding! The bus is here!” – Jeff H.
“Hello Earthlings, welcome to Planet Muni.” – Amy C.
“MUNI: FML” – Ashlee B.
Got a caption for this NextBus hiccup?
By the way, if you are still itching to win the New Yorker‘s caption contest, Slate has some tips. Think Farley the Gatekeeper still works there? I hope not, because I totally want his job. And check out Kirk’s hate-love relationship with NextBus, a diary from Monday.
“C’mon NextBus, tell me when the next bus is coming!” “I’m sorry, Dave. I’m afraid I can’t do that.”

So this is where my federal stimulus money went.

Heh this made me laugh!
Greetings Professor Falken. Would you like to play a game?
I kind of ripped off your idea of old movie reference. But it kinda looked like
the WOPR to me.
The driver of this next bus is totally phonin’ it in.
(sorry, couldn’t resist)
Apparently NextBus just hired Woodstock the bird.
“We’re trying to confuse you enough to make you forget the bus is late.”
The Matrix is everywhere. It is all around us. Even now, in this very room. You can see it when you look out your window or when you turn on your television. You can feel it when you go to work… when you go to church… when you pay your taxes. It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth.
Ha! Love the reference but can’t think of the name of that movie… Was it 2001? I’ll bet nobody under 40 knows what you’re talking about!
