This is an entry into the Fortnightly Topic Challenge #41.

Last night me and my friends had a fun night at the bar. When it was time for us to leave, we couldn't come up with a transport that will be comfortable and fit our status the most. After a while we came up with the following list of candidates (left to right on the picture):

all of them here

Oyster
Wild retard Steve
Korn Ferry owner
Bears
Daemons
Croach
This bowtie
AXA editor
Nacho
Doritos

As we are still in the bar arguing, could you resolve our conundrum? What transport would satisfy our needs?

  • $\begingroup$ Daemons or demons 🙂? One is a Unix background process, the other a malevolent spirit. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @Phylyp The wording is correct; there are also living entities called "daemons" - it's slightly different from demon (quotation needed), but still. $\endgroup$ Nov 15, 2018 at 11:15
  • $\begingroup$ Thank you, I didn't know that earlier, Google has now educated me :) $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ A great question well done @ThomasBlue $\endgroup$ Nov 15, 2018 at 11:25
  • $\begingroup$ @OmegaKrypton I started creating it exactly for the challenge, but than thought it's overly complicated. Now I probably will. $\endgroup$ Nov 15, 2018 at 11:54

Each picture has one or more numbers. Taking the nth letter from each image's description:

Oyster (4)
Wild retard Steve (8)
Korn Ferry owner (1, 6)
Bears (2)
Daemons (2)
Croach (5)
This bowtie (2, 4, 9)
AXA editor (2, 7)
Nacho (4)
Doritos (-)

Which spells take each sixth...

Each sixth letter from the words spells RETRY BACTWARDS (small typo there?)

Starting from the end, it spells ONE THREE ONE TWO

Which is 1312, or in A1Z26... A CAB

    $\begingroup$ @jafe Man that's fast (also, damn that typo, I was so close to making a flawless puzzle). I'll add the tick later, if you don't mind. $\endgroup$ Nov 15, 2018 at 11:39

    $\begingroup$ So, the final answer is "start trouble, get a ride in the back of a police cruiser" then? :-) $\endgroup$
