Epic Beered Man

August 11th, 2010

I am a Work in Progress

I guess I’m a bad Christian, because the Steven Slater story cracks me up every time I think about it.

I know he cursed a bunch of people and broke the law by deploying a jet’s safety chute. I know he stole two beers in the process, probably hoping to get a good start on getting plastered. I know that when the cops caught him, he was busy engaging in sodomy.

I know.

It still slays me.

Pray for both of us.

    Mark Steyn once said “If you want to see America’s worst-dressed gay men, take a plane.”

    Now you can just turn on the TV.

    Maybe it’s because you know how rude airline passengers can be.

    You know he had probably thought about doing something similar (making an “emergency” exit) a million times when he had a bad day serving mini-bottles of bourbon to egotistical idiots, and finally he cracked and did it…

    Ok I worked in the travel industry, and I also sold shoes in a dept store-two of the WORST jobs on earth but I am totally with the dude for telling everyone off!

    The replacements sucked but… Waitress in the sky still rings true.

    Yes, he’s a mess of a human being but he managed to make a splash without killing anybody. That’s a pleasant switch these days.

    That’s what I pointed out over at Sondra’s!

  9. Randy Rager Says:

    I think we can all relate to him, at least a bit. I know I can.

    What do you want to bet that he’s been ridden hard (sorry for the word choice) by a bunch of jerk middle managers lately?

    The Caja China is universal!


    Or the concept of slow roasting pig over indirect heat, anyway.

    Where do I get guitar tab for that background music?

    The funny thing is, he’s gay, but the moves he made were such GUY moves. Except for the sodomy.
