Seriously, you couldn't make this shit up!
|If I saw this outside my plane window, I know I'd freak out.|
"Are you sure we didn't crash in the ocean or something?"
"Pretty sure, why?"
"No reason ... it's just there's a ruddy great shark on the left side of the plane."
"George, you've got to start laying off the tequila."
But you know what the funniest thing about that article was? It wasn't the fact that it was about a remote control flying shark, cause come on ... COOL! It wasn't about how I couldn't help snickering when I thought of the passengers, and what they must have thought when they looked out the window to see Jaws flying by.
No, it was a quote from Glen Kenny, the New Zealand Air Line Pilots' Association President that had me snickering. When asked what he thought about it, he said "It says it's an indoor toy on the box. If you take them outside and the wind gets them, they can be goneburgers, so you've got to be a bit careful."
Goneburgers? I'm totally using that, Captain Kenny.
The flying shark made by a group called Air Swimmers, which also makes a flying clown fish. I'm so tempted to buy one just for the Finding Nemo jokes alone!
