Overheard During the Air Show

Today marked the first time in about two years that the Air Show has returned to Kansas City. Not to make waste of the day, I ventured over to the New Tragedies’ place and viewed some of the planes from their rooftop deck. While there, I was surrounded by some of the weirdest people I’ve ever listened to... fortunately, I was able to remember a majority of the best quotes uttered while the Blue Angels wrecked havoc overhead.

Dude 1: “Hell, I can’t tell if that’s a bird or a plane.”
Dude 2: “Or if it’s Superman!”
“Someone told me that aliens really fly the Blue Angel jets... which would make them not only the world’s best pilots, but the universe’s. But I don’t believe that, because that’s not too patriotic.”
“Do you think one of the pilots makes jokes about being everyone’s wingman?”
“Ooo! There’s number four, he’s my favorite! HE JUST WAIVED!!!”
“One time a Blue Angel flew into orbit and burned up on re-entry, just for the show.”
Dude 1: “Bet you didn’t know that those planes run on Jack Daniels.”
Dude 2: “What? That’s not possible. Why would they do that?”
Dude 1: “Because running on whiskey is 100% pure un-adulterated patriotism.”
Dude 2: “That makes no sense. Besides, it would cost a fortune.”
Dude 1:“Not really, the government can tax whiskey.”
“I read on Drudge that scientists are trying desperately to clone the Blue Angels so that each city has their own set and can have air shows every weekend – to boost patriotism.”
“I heard that for the finale, the Blue Angels do a solar eclipse of the sun. Yeah, they join in a circle and cover it up. That way people in Japan will be able to watch, too.”
Dude 1: “Wow, it’s getting windy all of a sudden.”
Dude 2: “Oh yeah, that’s the after effects from the Blue Angels flying. Remember that F5 that hit Oklahoma City? Well, that was right after the Blue Angels flew. The next week, they issued a press release saying that it was the fastest they’ve ever flown and that they’ll never do that again.”

I’m thinking about going back to watch it tomorrow, I hope those goobers aren’t there.

That's funny because I was going to post an "Overheard at the Air Show" on my blog as well. Who were the goobers?
