Hmm for some reason those subtweets didn't come up for me, only comments from others. Thanks for clarifying. I'll take back my comment.

Police commissioner: Do you know that, because of you, this city is being overrun by baboons?
Frank Drebin: Well, isn't that the fault of the voters?

The picture shown was not a baboon. It was some other species of monkey.

Nothing like a little monkey business on the ramp. Can you imagine the ATC advisories? Any ATC friends want to chime in?

I imagine it'd be like what I heard air traffic control say about a coyote on the runway once - "use caution, he's not on frequency."

Why is it racism? It was more likely a reference to the recent incident on F9 involving a man punching a pregnant woman and her service dog (a great dane). That would be my guess. I could be wrong.

I assumed it was because F9 has animals on their tails.


Yeah I think that's the joke he was making.

Thanks for that, classic stuff, between the ‘Naked gun’ movies and ‘Airplane’ some of the best lines ever written

Come on, the af1 post was priceless. Let us have at least some humor, no matter what your beliefs are
Instead of typing in "mods", consider using the report function.
Love how every "travel blogger" says they will never fly AA/Ethihad again and then says it again and again on subsequent flights.

I just read this story to my students.

Student #1: "Why would there be a baboon on an airplane?"

Student#2: "Why wouldn't there be?"

Winner!
