Caption contest: How Sharpie is your wit?

Update: Congrats to our winner – Tammy L. from Keavy, Kentucky. Her caption was short and sweet – and made us laugh out loud: "For a good time … call 1-812-937-4401." (That's the park's phone number.) Congrats to Tammy, who wins two one-day tickets. Thanks to all who entered! —- It's time for another caption…

Queuing up

Any French majors out there? One of the first words students learn in French 101 is “queue.” That’s because it’s a French word commonly used in English as well.
