What are some common misconceptions about airplane travel? ~

Posted - August 13, 2019


  • That it requires...

    excessive fuel,
    pricey airfare,  
    long TSA lines,    
    cramped seating,
    lost luggage,
    crying babies,

    I say no.

    Some planes take flight with nothing more than
    a piece of paper, a gentile breeze, and playful imagination.

    These are quite often the most exciting journeys of all.

    Hmmmm.... maybe that one has endured the pain so many times, that by now, things will be different and they have figured out a way to endure the torture.  I DOUBT IT.   It is like paying someone to put you in jail; complete with frisking.

    It's enjoyable.  There is not one enjoyable thing about it, beginning with having to go to an airport.

    That air travel is safe and your chances of dying in a spectacular crash are slim.

    And that "pigs fly" expression? - - -  pigs DO fly because, though I didn't expect it I just saw you here and broke out into a huge smile!

    I landed with a crash and a woosh! 


    I'm being a good boy ;)

  • So glad to see you here, hon.  I love you!  I love you!  I love you!  And though I am blessed by your company all the time, I missed you being away from "The Mug".  Welcome back.  I'm so excited!

    Awwwwww, Monkey! I love you too! You always give the most loving welcomes.
    You have no idea the horrors I have witnessed while I was gone, vanquished to wander the great cyber wilderness.

    The first day of my exile saw me awash with loneliness, confusion, and bitterness, then... 

     I sought refuge in despotic hellholes, websites of questionable reputation full of seedy characters,  thugs, and liars.  I was spiraling downward into a maelstrom of infinite Trump rallies.  Oh, the sites I saw...

    Where have you been, goat man?  You are missed when you are absent for too long.

    Oh I see.  I have been there/   I think if we disobey the TOS, we should just be limited to the free-for-all room until our sentence is passed.  I think they want to punish us.  Anyway, I'm glad you are here because I like you and I like posting pics of goats.

    Le doorknocker: Have you got a minute to let me tell you about our Lord?
    Le me: Knock yourself up.
    Le doorknocker: Don't you mean 'Knock yourself out'?
    Le me: No, I mean 'Go f**k yourself'.

    I'm a smarta$$, so sometimes I just can't help myself. Jokes of all colours - and I censored the lewd bit.
