Trash the little buggers!

Good Day Readers:

Next time you're delayed on a commercial flight because of a tardy parliamentarian you have three options:

(1) Find the nearest dumpster to throw them in along with an old tire but remember don't .... on them it's against the law to .... on a parliamentarian

(2) Locate the nearest trash receptacle with their mug on the side and squeeze their fat taxpayers' ass through the opening

(3) Don't let them board the plane

The preferred option is (1). Remember you paid for their ticket.

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan – Flight delays are nothing unusual at Pakistan’s ailing state carrier, Pakistan International Airlines, long hobbled by political interference, a bloated staff and epic financial losses.

But the delayed departure of one flight on Monday caused several enraged passengers to mount a virtual mutiny and eject one politician and block another from the plane before it could even take off.

The incident occurred at the Karachi airport when Rehman Malik, a former interior minister best known for his colorful ties and erratic pronouncements, turned up two hours late for a flight to Islamabad.

The state airline often delays flights to accommodate tardy politicians and senior bureaucrats, which is seen as one reason for its patchy operational performance.
