Robin Hood star leads air passengers in revolt

May 25, 2010

Refusing to go through security at JFK airport in New York City, film actor Russell Crowe — currently starring in the movie Robin Hood —  gathered a band of airline passengers around him and seized control of JFK’s concourse F,  color-coded green. Crowe and the group, calling themselves the Merry Frequent Fliers, rebooked first class, roasted venison, drank toasts to King Richard the Lionhearted while denouncing per bag luggage fees and generally carried on.

Crowe said he would continue to steal from the rich airlines and give to the poor, downtrodden airline passengers until the FAA made the airlines stop over-booking flights, forced them to serve full meals like goat’s head soup with mead and allowed Crowe to operate the jetway and have archery contests while airborne.

    Tim: Is it the water down east that makes you so wacky? Or is there something far more sinister at work here? Robin ‘in the hood’ Hood. I don’t know how I could have missed this in the Times? Berson

  2. It’s not the water, it’s the chitin in the lobster shells. As a long-chain polymer of a N-acetylglucosamine, chitin is like a bowling ball in a glass factory, or a tennis ball in a figurine factory, or gall in your olfactory.

    Anyway, the stuff gets everywhere. And it is sinister. It was really chitin that brought down the Roman Empire. True story.
