Caption it!

The Bus Fam’s off to spend a few days in the Motor City, during which we will hopefully participate in (or eavesdrop on*) many a bus-wide discussion.

In the meantime, please help me with a caption for this lovely photo Bus Nerd snapped while we waited for the 4 on Memorial Day.

Gone fishin'

This one’s from the northbound 3rd & Union stop, in front of the post office:

Best caption wins the admiration and envy of the rest of us.

I had two favorites, but I finally settled on this one:

“14 to Summit here. 14 to Mt. Baker over there.”

Extra brownie points for the stop/route knowledge.

The runner up:

“One of these has gotta be a snow route.”

All of the captions were great, though. I can’t wait to do that again.

Caption it!

You guys did such a great job with the rooster photo that I’ve decided to let you have a go at this one, taken last week at 5th & Jackson:

Which bus goes to the Summit?

Best caption (as judged by me–with perhaps a bit of input by Bus Nerd) wins, well…nothing. We’ll all think you’re really cool and clever, though.
