There’s nothing funny about an airplane crash landing. But there is something funny about the crash landing preparedness cards that are a staple of airplane seat back pockets. At least there is at the Airtoons website.
As Spot Cool Stuff readers are almost certainly aware, airplane safety cards contain drawings that are supposed to be instructional but that don’t have any captions. We never gave the lack of written directions much thought, figuring the idea was to make people who speak other languages (or who can’t read) confident they were getting all the necessary safety information. But for the creator of Airtoons, the lack of captions inspired him to write his own. With humorous—sometimes darkly so—results.
See below for some examples of Airtoons work. Unless you are about to get on a flight—then you probably won’t find it so funny.
