He might have been on a shiatty 1980s sitcom and that home video show but Bob Saget's a funny motherfarker. And filthy. He makes Andrew Dice Clay sound like Bill Cosby.

Bob Sagat's standup act is actually pretty amusing. Much funnier than, say, Dane Cook or the Blue Collar Comedy Retards

I like the idea of the airlines offering child-free flights. I'd pay more for a ticket to have the luxury of no screaming kids.

Unless you've seen him more than once. He never changes his material. Two years ago or today, same stuff.

THIS. He used to be a regular on Stern I believe. He was definitely a funny son of a biatch.

Obviously you are a troll becuase Dane Cook does parts of Bob Saget's act, so they must be equally funny.

Babies should be medicated before they fly. The pain from their ears can be torture. They really should get pain meds and sedatives.

It sucks to be on a plane near a crying child, but apparently Bob Saget has never heard of an Ipod. WTF is that cowbell noise though?

He did a show at my undergrad university once.

I went. I wasn't that funny. Once you get over the first few minutes of "Oh hey that guy from the wholesome TV show curses and says dirty things," it gets old, fast.

Oh cool, you said something about sexing the Olsen Twins again. That's clever.
 
2010-10-13 02:28:55 PM  
I'd cry too if Bob Saget was on my flight. Babies are babies, get over it, Saget.

Of course you weren't funny. That's why Bob Saget was doing the show. He is a professional comedian after all.

No you wouldn't. You may think you would, but you wouldn't. Because the airline would have to restrict certain flights to people with children, or add more flights, which will certainly never happen. Either way, the additional cost to operate kid-free flights would be way more than anyone is willing to pay. Just upgrade to business/first class if it bothers you that much, or buy a good set of headphones and shut the fark up.

I don't like children in public places, either, but I also think some of you hip douches hate waaay too much on people with kids.

I agree, but I am positive some "family rights" groups would protest/sue.

I was on a flight to Miami once, and this baby wouldn't stop crying, so I killed it.

This.

Not to mention, if people would actually pay more for a kid-less flight, airlines would already be doing it.

And your parents may or may not have been jerks (as in, may or may not have brought you on the plane) and you may or may not have been an exceptionally whiny child.

They already have them, dumbass. It's called "first class" or "private jets."

Ah, I sure do love the monthly "children on planes" greenlit thread. Douchebags really come out of the woodwork for these.
 
2010-10-13 02:36:42 PM  
I have two children and heartily support the "no babies on planes" policy.

You decide to have a kid? No flights or dinners in fancy restaurants for you until your child can behave himself and not annoy everyone around you.
 
2010-10-13 02:36:50 PM  
WTF is up with that cowbell? Do some parents actually give their kids friggin' cowbells to play with? On a plane?

Wait, stupid question. A couple of years ago I went to an Atlanta Symphony Orchestra concert in the park and these incredibly dense parents gave their kid (3 or 4 years old, maybe?) pots and pans and a wooden spoon so their little snowflake could "express himself" right along with the professional musicians during the concert. They were oblivious to 500 people giving them the stink-eye, and finally some official at the park asked them to take the noisemakers away from their kid. They left in a huff. Good riddance.

Buy some Bose headphones, Bob.

2010-10-13 02:39:12 PM  
Why do people with kids even need to use planes? Based on a lot of the attitudes that I've witnessed, I'm pretty sure the earth must revolve around these people. Can't they and their children just remain in one spot and let their destination come to them?
 
2010-10-13 02:39:17 PM  
Seriously, the most expensive headphones in the world wouldn't drown out that cowbell noise without also shattering your eardrums. I don't care too much about kids on a flight, but after 6 hours of that I'd have punched the mom before leaving the flight. How extremely rude and annoying that woman is for letting her child be that damn loud on a flight. She should be banned from all future flights.

Make it pet free while you're at it. I recently had a trans-Atlantic flight where somebody brought a cat. About half-way across the Atlantic, it started crying. Two and a half hours of that crap, and earplugs didn't do much to help. Earplugs don't do much for barking dogs, either. Especially when you're trying to sleep.

Actually, I'm surprised that children under the age of 3 haven't been banned from aircraft due to child welfare concerns. The reason the kid is screaming at the top of his lungs is because he's in pain. If I started hurting children so much that they screamed like that, I've have the police and child services on my back in a heartbeat. But hey, dragging the kid to see grandma a few states over is justifiable cause to harm him, right?

You'll do fine. Luckily for you, even if things get a bit hairy for a few minutes, the mouth breathing cowards you see in threads like this just don't tend to exist in the real world. If they do, they sure seem to know when to keep their mouth shut.

I heard he and Glenn Beck both did. Why isn't the news covering this story?

I don't get why there isn't an airline that offers families-only flights. Sure, it would a guaranteed flight full of screaming and crying, but at least you;d know everyone on the plane knew what they were getting into.

Maybe people "hate waaay too much on people with kids" becuase they are told to "shut the fark up" rather than the ill-behaved child making all the racket.

I tried watching him. Found him quite un-funny. Wow, you can swear to show that you're not the Bob Saget from Full-House, then you spend half your bit re-hashing stories from the set of full-house. I have no idea what his comedic appeal is. No idea or judgment on what he may be like as a person, but I can't find the comedy in his routine.
