Reminds me (somehow) a bit of what I heard on Bob Dylan's Theme Time Radio program.

He was discussing the fact that The Who covered Mose Allison's song "Young Man Blues" on their Live at Leeds album. When Allison received his first royality check, it was such a large amount of money he thought it must have been a mistake.

Then Bob Dylan said "I bet he kept the money though." :mrgreen:

Flight with 85 plumbers on board forced to return to airport due to toilet trouble

It sounds like the start of a joke: How many plumbers does it take to fix a plane toilet? As it turns out, even an aircraft full of handymen might not suffice, as demonstrated on a recent Norwegian flight.

Flight DY1156 took off from Oslo Gardermoen at 9.34am on 27 January, headed for Munich. However, the aircraft only got as far as the Swedish border before it had to turn back, circling four times over Hedmark to get rid of excess fuel and then landing at Oslo.

The flight was aborted as a result of a problem with the toilets on board, according to Norwegian communications advisor Fatima Elkadi.

“It is true that DY1156, which was to fly from Oslo to Munich, had to return to Oslo again when they found an issue with the toilets on board,” she told Dagbladet, a Norwegian news site.

The irony is that around 85 of the passengers were plumbers, many of them from Rørkjøp plumbing company.

Rørkjøp CEO Frank Olsen said he would have liked to have a crack at it but was thwarted by a technicality.

“We would have liked to fix the restrooms, but unfortunately it had to be done from the outside and we didn’t risk sending a plumber to work at 10,000m,” he told Dagbladet. “There was a good atmosphere in the plane, what with the irony about the broken toilets.”

Hans Christian Ødegård, a plumber from company Ulstein, added: “So many plumbers on a plane and it has to turn around because of toilet trouble – there’s good humour in that.”

Technicians at Gardermoen soon fixed the problem and the plane took off again, landing in Munich at around 12pm.

Quote:
And the plumber he say 'Never flush a tampoon'

Goose shot from sky falls, knocks Maryland hunter unconscious
Incoming!!! :D

A dead goose fell from the sky Thursday and knocked a waterfowl hunter unconscious.

Robert Meilhammer, a 51-year-old resident of Crapo in Dorchester County, Md., was hunting as part of a larger party near the Miles River around 5 p.m. when a flock of geese flew overhead. The group fired on birds.

One goose fell, striking Meilhammer and knocking him out.

"One of the members of the hunting party shot and killed the goose," said Maryland Natural Resources Police spokeswoman Candy Thomson. "It is unclear which one it was."

Meilhammer suffered head and facial injuries, and was airlifted to Maryland Shock Trauma, Thomson said.

It's so unfair in life when you meet the adult equivalents of the bad kids from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and you're not allowed to murder them in various ironic ways.

Arizona woman, 92, shot, killed son who tried putting her in assisted living, cops say :shock:

Ironically, jail, prison and house arrest are all kinds of assisted living arrangements.

No matter how much sorrow she feels at a funeral. Joy Behar (if she crys) will always cry tears of joy. That's fucked up.

Remember back in the 80s when parents were concerned Ozzy Osbourne was going to be a bad influence
Image
& Bill Cosby was the role model?

Image
Now Ozzy still has legions of fans, a successful tv show and continues touring.

Image
While Cosby begins the first night of his minimum of three years in jail after being found guilty of destroying multiple lives as a sexual predator.
