The Aussies really get off on this type of humor, don’t they?

Not enough light fare around here lately. Thanks to Randy for helping address that.

If the Australian airlines take offense to Al Kyder and Terry Wrist’s shenanigans, will Al Kyder and Terry Wrist be arrested and put on trial in a Kangaroo Court?

I wonder if the airlines have a rule against allowing animals to be seated on the aircraft and if the airlines ever allowed Wally Be to board.

Good afternoon, yes maam, I did write the book “Revenge of the Tiger” and yes, my name really is Claude Bawls.

Oh boy, here we go. How long before someone mentions Richard Head and Richard Hertz?

Jeff on February 22, 2007 at 9:48 AM

I’m just imagining the passengers response when they hear that they’re waiting for “Al Kyder” to board the plane.

That was pretty juvenile.

Well, it would have been more amusing if that boarding agent was calling for Amanda Kissenhug.

DakRoland on February 22, 2007 at 10:10 AM

Looks like the girl doing the paging got the joke.

infidel4life on February 22, 2007 at 10:13 AM

Oh that is gold pure gold!

liberrocky on February 22, 2007 at 10:25 AM

It’s from ABC’s ‘the Chaser’ – also known as The Chaser’s War on Everything. Along the lines of The Daily Show, THHNH etc

A lot of the same crew from the ‘This is CNNNN’ days is involved with it

Dick Fitzwell and Haywood Jah Bloomy are not amused.

Kid from Brooklyn on February 22, 2007 at 10:57 AM

the one on the bridge was a ton funnier.

lorien1973 on February 22, 2007 at 11:00 AM

We need more of this type of humor. They sure made their point.

omegaram on February 22, 2007 at 11:11 AM

What about Patrick Fitzgerald and Gerald Fitzpatrick?

DSkinner on February 22, 2007 at 11:15 AM

Hey, Kid, don’t forget Hugh Jorgan.

KelliD on February 22, 2007 at 11:28 AM

I believe you guys left Jack Meoph off of the list of offended.

brtex on February 22, 2007 at 11:46 AM

That was fuuuunnnnyyyy!

Troy Rasmussen on February 22, 2007 at 11:54 AM

They played that as the last clip of the show on Brit Hume last night. I thought he and Fred Barnes were going to wet themselves they were laughing so hard.

Dudley Smith on February 22, 2007 at 12:02 PM

OMG that was hillarious.

One Angry Christian on February 22, 2007 at 12:14 PM

Am I nuts, or was there a Major Leaguer named Al Kaider? I’m wanting to say he played for the Tigers, but can’t find anything on him.

The Monster on February 22, 2007 at 1:11 PM

Al Leiter was his name
And Mike Hunt is not amused by any of this.

RobG on February 22, 2007 at 2:14 PM

Neither is Mike Hoch.

The Monster on February 22, 2007 at 1:11 PM

“The Monster,”

You are partially right!

Al Leiter was mentioned above by RobG. Al Leiter never played for the Detroit Tigers. He did play as a pitcher for the New York Yankees, the Florida Marlins, the Toronto Blue Jays, and the New York Mets.

There was also a great player named Al Kaline, who played for the Detroit Tigers from 1953 to 1974.

In my days as a baseball player and fan I owned an Al Kaline baseball glove.

It’s good we can laugh. This humor on the subject, while juvenile in origin, was ironically tasteful as opposed to the BBC’s Terrorism Awards.

We need to laugh to prevent us from crying, but do it with respect.

hadsil on February 22, 2007 at 3:51 PM

Did anyone hear about the incident involving the terrorist after he was sent to blow up a car and ended up in the burn center at the hospital?

He burned his lips on the exhaust pipe!

William2006 on February 22, 2007 at 4:10 PM

We are all going to heeeeeeeeeell!

My word, that was funny!

Here’s the bridge one followed by a nuclear reactor

Also, everyone else is tossing out their favorite “names”… does no one else remember when O’Reilly got punked like this?

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,131373,00.html

Jack Mehoffer, Springfield, Massachusetts says, “O’Reilly, I see the new Fox definition of fair and balanced means interviewing DNC chief Terry McAuliffe at both conventions.”

Thinking the same thing.
