(Thanks to Nicole at Hitwise for the heads up…)
Every once in a while, a story comes along the reminds me why I get up an write this stupid thing every day:
An American Airlines flight from Washington to Dallas was forced to divert to Nashville after passengers smelled smoke on the airplane. I’ll cut to the chase: they smelled smoke because a woman lit matches in the bathroom to cover up the smell of her farts. While she was not charged with any crime (has the TSA banned gas? — it’s not a liquid), American has banned her from flying the airline.
I almost feel like I should just shut down this website right now because there is no way I will ever EVER find a better story than this. All the other blah blah blah I write in here every day pales in comparison to a woman trying to cover up her flatulence and forcing a plane to divert. I will spend the rest of my life chasing another story like this one. Bravo.
