I figure everyone could use a laugh today, so I’m linking to this ridiculous post based on some kind of a right-wing chain-email hoax about a recent AirTran flight that was delayed. The gist of it is that someone’s been sending around an email saying that there was a bunch of Muslims watching porn, screaming into their cellphones, and calling people “infidel dogs” before take-off and that this indicates that the whole thing was a dry run for a terrorist attack. Because that’s what terrorists do: they try to draw attention to themselves when they’re preparing for an attack. Steve M. does a good job of dissecting all the craziness.
The comments are predictably funny in general, but this one stood out:
There’s far too much detail here for this to be a fabrication.
Maybe this is just the Diet Dr. Pepper talking, but I think that phrase may have legs.
