THE X FILES

On Sunday night troops returning home from Iraq were left stranded in Darwin after a bird collided with their plane and the captain decided to turn the plane around and assess the damage.

THEY'S TRAINING STEALTH BUDGIES, I TELLS YA!

Dumb captain, how close to Darwin was he? Could have kept going and assessed the damage when he got there, then commandeered another plane if necessary to get the troops home. Returning soldiers always get the raw deals.

He landed in Darwin and the troops were stuck in the terminal but better that than an engine going out half way across the N.T. Bird strikes are hazardous to flying health.

Why did I pick up on it? Because they didn't say what kind of bird, stealth budgies I say.

Did they assess the damage to the budgie, I wonder?

"...they didn't say what kind of bird..."

A pair of tits, by the sounds of things.

Wasn't sure what to say till I read Brian Hughes hahaha ...left speechless for laughing.

I'd say it was a pretty stuffed bird at the end of it all :P

JahTeh said...

"A pair of tits", you've been over to Sedgwick's place, oggling the green princess.

Therese, I believe Hughes can be hired by the minute for leaving ladies speechless.

Oz, Jayne's here so she can answer what kind of birds fly in Darwin. I think it's lack of compassion that they didn't identify the avian bomb.

I saw Gang-Gang Cockatoos today by the road.
Grey bodies, bright orange heads.
They could gang-gang-up on stealth budgies.

I would actually ban all jet planes for the damage they do to birds (when I run The Ministry Of Fear)

Stealth Budgies? Oh dear, perhaps the local Feds could re-route the 50 mill or so allocated to "green cars" (interesting paint job - prefer British Racing green, meself .. ahhh, sidetracked, again) and spend it on fridge magnuts warning us to beware of ALL underground avians.

I blame Jahteh for making me crochet the new blankie in many multi-coloured squares, after flashing her masterpieces on here recently. :P

JahTeh said...

I wouldn't mind a budgie fridge magnet, look nice against the nekkid bodies that make my day.

Jayne, I've always wanted to be a fashion muse.
