You know, to mock a plane crash is really Haiti. Can't Kuwait until some time has passed before you Russia to make your puns? Taiwan to have a serious discussion here, but I may have to go do something else now, such as work on my Rubik's Cuba with my friends, Chad Andorra.

Belize and thank you.

"BRASILIA (Reuters) - Rescue workers recovered 24 bodies on Sunday from the bottom of a river in the Amazon jungle after a plane crashed in bad weather, airline officials and rescue workers said."

Really? A river? Just any ol' river, huh?

Does Reuters not trust people to know what or where the farking Amazon is?

Didn't read too far, eh?

BRASILIA (Reuters) - Rescue workers recovered 24 bodies on Sunday from the bottom of a river in the Amazon jungle after a plane crashed in bad weather, airline officials and rescue workers said.

Divers pulled the bodies out of the wreckage in the murky waters of the Manacapuru River some 100 km (62.5 miles) southwest of Manaus, the capital of Amazonas state.

There are no plane crashes. Only plane pilots.

at least it wasn't the yellow river....

isn't that funny,

in my opinion.

subby, it wasn't the Amazon river.

Must have been a bunch of Turkey`s Russian to land that thing. Belize me, I`ll think twice before flying with them. I wonder if they even submitted a flight Poland.

OK they pulled them out of Amazonas then. Better?

If just one more person had died their bodies would've gotten free shipping...
 
2009-02-09 02:45:36 AM  
How'd they fit 24 brazilian people on one plane?

That's just wrong.

I read the headline as PLANET instead of plane, twice.

"In total there were 28 people on board,..."
"...The official passenger list showed only 20 people on board,..."

Is this like a big city bus crash where an empty bus suddenly has 15-30 people on it with neck pain?

Last minute dead-headers, crew, maybe some off-the-books travelers? They're not as precise about that sort of thing as in, say, LaGuardia.

(que dramatic movie trailer vocals)

In a world where fark.com subbys have hit rock bottom
one subby had the courage, the passion
to actually submit an outstanding headline
 
2009-02-09 06:20:11 AM  
I suppose this headline could have been funny if the airline officials and rescue workers were normally dispatched from Egypt to Brazil. As it was, it was just. . . a stretch.

MrGronk: How'd they fit 24 brazilian people on one plane?


small ones...



The airplane involved, an EMB-110P1, has a (certificated) maximum number of passenger seats of nineteen. On the accident flight 26 passengers had boarded the flight, including eight small children.

Manacapuru River. Not every river in Brazil is the Amazon.

Well, it is nice to see that the airline is offering free Brazilians with every ticket purchased over the next ten days
