This satirical cartoon is a little bit more on the sensitive side. It is jabbing at recent global flight issues on planes that have crashed and disappeared, have had terrorist attacks, and problems such as those sorts. The 'fingers crossed' symbolizes the inner voice that wants to say "I hope we make it to our destination without a single problem or accident."

My own take at Satire

I think it's a funny thing how America makes unhealthier items, such as fast food and such, cheaper in price than the healthier materials. For example, you can buy a 44 oz fountain soft drink from an amusement park or carnival for $2.00 or you can buy a 14 oz bottle of water for $2.50. It's like you have to pay more to live a healthy life, and it is easier to be unhealthy than it is to be healthy.
