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.
