A wiener dog is my copilot!
Blog Guy, I’m planning a vacation in Italy. I hear there are labor problems at the airline over there. What is the main issue?
They want to EXECUTE people? For what?
Oh, you know, the usual. Tampering with smoke detectors, getting up during turbulence, wearing unfashionable clothing…
Yikes! Do they have any other issues?
Yes, I think the pilots are protesting the current practice of using wiener dogs as copilots on international flights.
Cripes! Maybe I’ll just go to France, instead.
