Hold on Ma, we’re a half-second from Miami!
Blog Guy, I know you’re one of the biggest names in travel writing, and I have a question.
My family loves to travel overseas, but we hate the hassle of getting there. You know, 10-hour flights to Europe, and like 20 hours or more to Asia… Is anybody working on faster flights?
Indeed. A travel agency called Going Ballistic is sending several people at a time on long-range trips via surface-to-air missiles.
How’s the food on these flights?
Food? You don’t seem to understand. These folks will be in Cleveland in four seconds.
That’s not much time for in-flight entertainment.
I guess I’m not explaining this right. These passengers will hold on for dear life, shrieking like a prom queen in a slasher movie, until they slam into an airport terminal at the speed of sound.
Boy, I’ll bet their overhead luggage REALLY shifts during flight, eh?
I give up. Yes, I bet it does.
So in this other photo on the left, I see there’s one guy standing directly in front of the missile. What’s up with him?
Oh, him? I think he’s going stand-by.
