Caribbean People 101OR,
Why West Indians couldn't have been the 911 terrorists...
- We are always late; we would have missed all 4 flights.
- Pretty girls on the plane would distract us.
- We would talk loudly and bring attention to ourselves.
- With food and drinks on the plane, we would forget why we're there.
- We talk with our hands; therefore we would have to put our weapons down.
- We would ALL want to fly the plane.
- We would argue and start a fight in the plane.
- We can't keep a secret, we would have told everyone a week before doing it.
- We would have put our country's flag on the windshield.
- We would all have fallen over each other to be in the photograph being taken by one of the hostages!!!
Radmilla pointed me to the Serbian version of this joke; so I got to wondering just how many versions of this foolish thing are there? Thus far I've found 6 incarnations. Which means at least two things. One, that a good joke travels well. And two, that most people are just too feckless to blow shit up.
