    How about:

    “Just when you think the airlines can’t cut back anymore on their services”

    Or

    “Remember, travel light!”

    Tom, Dick and Harry were praised for their insights into letting some light in. They were promoted to Vice Presidents of Creative and are now applying their new way of thinking to all things corporate. John (not pictured) was fired for thinking too far out of the box. He is now president of his own Creative Comapny.

    Where would you rather work, a company that promotes creative thinking as long as it is still within the structure of the box, or one that appreciates thinking outside the box? When you make the decision to leave the safety of the box behind, give us a call. John did and look where he has gotten to.

    “As you can see here, the last three or our ‘out-of-the-box-personnel’ suffered extreme trauma when their corporate buyers failed to release the twisty-ties at the bottom of the box. I think we should include more detailed instructions with our future product.”

    or

    “When the suits decide to duke it out, they engage in this exotic form of boxing. This rare photograph captures the dramatic intensity of the moment.”

    And you thought running with scissors was dangerous.

    Without Stelzner’s help, it’s the blind leading the blind.

    A white paper may just be a better way to get noticed.

    Before I make my final decision, I’d like Bachelor #1, Bachelor #2, and Bachelor #3 to show me how he would jump for joy if I picked him.

    These are very clever and funny, congratulations to Jim. And Stephanie’s was good too. I always like these caption contests. It’s funny that both of the top quotes were about the banking execs, I guess that’s what people are thinking about these days.

    I can’t think of anything funny or catchy now because I’m soooo disoriented (or I’m not just that good at all). Hahahah. But people do think up funny stuff especially when it’s CEO related. ;P
