Those Who Can’t Doon January 13, 2014 at 6:00 am
Do you know my favorite sign around airport security? It’s the one that says something along the lines of “Making jokes about bombs will be taken seriously, and will come with severe criminal charges.” That’s right, there are places in the US where jokes are actually illegal.
Someday I’m going to come up with a few one-liners about bombs (“What’s the deal with atom bombs! They sure are a lot bigger than an atom!”)* and then ta-da! I’ll be jailed as a political prisoner. I’ll be a poster child for free speech, complete with a book tour, pundit talk show appearances, and a biopic starring Daniel Day-Lewis. I’ll be a HERO.
I just hope no Awkward Dads beat me to it by saying, “Har har! Did you find my C4 yet?” during a patdown.
*Hey, I didn’t say the joke would be good.
And you just got added to the no fly list, lol
The crash course to success!
I believe it.
Sniper? Is that you?
He should have had his dad teach him to fly a plane in an empty section of a parking lot like a normal kid.
Yes, we all know how well that generally works…
Even in an introductory first flight scenario, the instructor would put the student in the left seat and fly from the right seat.
*Takes deep breath; returns to just enjoying comic strip*
Yeah but maybe they’re in England.
I think this strip takes place in GB.
Are you telling me he is not a very good instructor?
One time, I was pulled aside for a more thorough search at an airport (this was about 3 or 4 years ago). I walked towards where they wanted me to, said, “oops, I forgot my shoes,” and walked back to line. I continued through the normal process without further interruption. That experience was almost as exciting as trying not to fall asleep on the plane, then falling asleep and having nothing negative (and noticeable) happen to me while I slept.
I’m currently training to be a pilot, and I’m pretty sure this is exactly what will happen when I start teaching next year. Horrifying yet hilarious.
That saying should only be said about those who are retired professionals in what they teach.
The class must be a smashing hit.
