Oh yeah, armed pilot! I can just see it!

A hijacker pulls a tinly little .45 and points it as the Emau while he is flying in alaska.

The emu calmly looks at the turd and tells him:


Ya call that a gun? That's not a gun! THIS IS A GUN!


Calmly pulling revolver form shoulder holster!


This is the world's biggest, most powerful handgun, its a Smith and Wesson .50 magnum, it will blows ya Ass clean through the tail of the aircraft.

Now sit the fuck down and shut the fuck up beyatch!

I will be sure to visit texas again someday. i have too many friends down here.

so basicly what your saying is that we all pretty much have a guide in the off chance that we go to Alaska?

Whenever I think of Alaska, I can't help but think:

There are strange things done /
In the land of the Midnight Sun /
By the men who toil for gold /

The [can't remember] nights /
Have seen strange/queer sights /
[can't remember]

I used to read "The Cremation of Sam McGee" for UIL in grade school. Used to be able to recite it in full at tongue twister speed. Alas, that was a couplea years ago.........

Best of luck to ya.

I would NEVER shoot that gun. That's a wrist-breaker.
