Air Farce

I'm once again waved off by The New Yorker's "Cartoon Caption" contest (#197).

My entry was closer to the spirit of the weird and limiting illustration:

"I don't know how female pilots land in those things"
I thought it was better than the first two finalists:
  • "She thinks her bomb bay makes her look fat.” - okay, I suppose

  • "It's a pretty good aircraft, except that it keeps nagging you to ask for directions.” - does nothing for me

  • "She's a lover, not a fighter." - not bad, not bad at all

That's not bad either.
