Gagnon said his church just wanted to provide parents and kids some easy fun in a tough economy, and get its message out. Free prizes were part of what drew so many, which included everything from skateboards to plasma-screen TVs.

And the message of his church is mindless consumerism?

Oh, they're plunging to the earth right in front of our eyes! One just went through the windshield of a parked car! Oh, the humanity! The eggs are hitting the ground like very tiny sacks of wet cement! Not since the Hindenburg tragedy has there been anything like this!"

FTFA:

"...dropping 60,000 eggs from the sky with big prizes on the line..."

"...organized the event, expecting 1,000 to 2,000 people."

60,000 eggs for an expected 1,000-2,000. I'm guessing the answer to your question is 'Yes'.

The television screen is the retina of the mind's eye. Therefore, the television screen is part of the physical structure of the brain. Therefore, whatever appears on the television screen emerges as raw experience for those who watch it. Therefore, television is reality, and reality is less than television.

A small food item and a chance at winning a free appliance, chosen effectively at random with no regard to my own needs or what I would prefer in such a thing? Time to elbow me some toddler face.

Done in one? Hell, done that afternoon! My family and I were driving to a state park on the New Hampshire coast on that Saturday and pulled over to grab sandwiches for the beach, and just happened to pull off at the exit that this friggin' event was happening. It took us 20 minutes to go a half mile down the road and we saw all these signs for "Helicopter Egg Drop" and my wife said the "As God as my witness line", then at the sub shop we commented that this didn't sound like a good idea and the sub guy said the same exact line....

When we got to the beach, we met up with friends and mentioned the drop and THEY said the line, too! Everybody loves them some WKRP.

And everyone loves them some Jan Smithers.

"We are sorry if they're upset. We did everything we could to give their family a nice time for free," said the Rev. Joshua Gagnon, the church's lead pastor.

That's a pretty crappy apology.

I got 3 dresses, at least that's not part of the meta. Was hanging out in dolanarr while my fiancée finished up, I got the pet in a drop and had like 60 eggs left so I thought, I'll just buy the eggs you can place anywhere and get her another for every 5 I got. Bought a stack, put one down. 1 hr cooldown.

You're lacking all the context of the episode, but the line is often cited as one of the funniest moments in TV history. Think promotional stunt gone horribly wrong.
