Flap faster, honey!

March 2, 2009

Blog Guy, you give great travel advice, and I need some. I just bought tickets on a budget Tibetan airline. They were very cheap, and now I’m wondering what to expect in the way of quality.

I guess it depends on how picky you are.

Um, why do you ask?

That airline doesn’t really own any planes. They use a more theoretical method of travel in which passengers get on a very fast horse, which gallops at breathtaking speed toward a mountain precipice. When it gets there, the horse stops suddenly.

And what happens to the passengers?

If you really don’t know, then rent some Looney Toons cartoons. I recommend Daffy Duck in “Himalaya Shmimalaya!”

So does this method of air travel actually work?

Yes. Briefly.

Stand up and be counted! Join the Oddly Enough blog network!
