Ok, I get the September 11 one, but I don’t see how that’s necessarily in poor taste.
It’s a Saturday. It involves planes. I understand how maybe having an airplane show on 9/11 could be considered in poor taste if it was in, say, New York City. But it’s not.
I don’t get how else we’re supposed to act on 9/11. Perhaps we should pretend planes don’t exist. I guess I will officially declare all 9/11s to be plane-free days, from now until the end of time. What’s that in the air? Is it a bird? Is it Superman? Well, it must be one of the two, because it sure as hell isn’t a plane on 9/11.
A real badman #1 is with his Justin Bieber posters and Spongebob backpack. Oh and his arm tats look like they’re on the wrong arms shouldn’t it be LIVE LIFE not LIFE LIVE since all English speaking nations read left to right.
@Dan: Perhaps there were circumstances preventing scheduling it on another weekend? Regardless, I wouldn’t necessarily classify it as an airplane disaster so much as a terrorist attack. If someone wanted to throw a “Good Times Al Quida Festival”, then that might be in bad taste. But don’t blame the planes.
Now, with number 1, there are two ways to go about it. The man and his daughter see a hilarious opportunity to be ironic and pose for a gangster picture in front of many girly items. Or, he was oblivious to the situation behind him and was being genuine. I’m hoping for the latter, personally.
If you go to that website for the airport and click the ‘Airport Day’ link, the most recent flier you can open is for last year’s. The 2010 one isn’t even available. Maybe they’ve taken it down and are in the process of rescheduling the event.
@ strawburial: okay, perhaps it takes a minor moron to not distinguish between an octopus and a jellyfish BUT.. it takes a major one to miss the sign directly below the damned thing that called it an octopus. c’mon!
Really? thats what makes you mad? that someone at the zoo says look at the lions when they are referring to tigers? I’ll tell you what annoys me, when someone douche sits around and tries to talk himself up into this idea that you’re somehow superior to everyone else, because you know the difference between lions and tigers. Guess what, not everyone cares about useless tiny details, it doesn’t necessarily make them a moron, in reality it means nothing. All that tells me is that you have some security issues with your own intelligence.
@mad2physicist … “it is amazing how often my wife and I are at the zoo looking at the tigers” — just out of curiosity, how often do you and your wife go to the zoo to look at tigers? Maybe you should find something else to do. Or find a new zoo.
