Dead for Tax Reasons: people will do anything to get out of coming to the US


Especially New Jersey.

Non FoxNews link, for who deny FoxNews our precious bodily links.

A post mortem in Limerick...

There was once a woman from Jersey.
Tryin to fly in from Germany,
Her heart gave out, without a doubt
And now shes dead.
 
2019-02-21 11:12:06 PM  
At least she wasn't arrested.
 
2019-02-21 11:14:38 PM  
Fox News reporting, so now I doubt the existence of death.

Some people will do anything for attention.

FTFA: Adam Lisberg, who spoke to the Sun, said "a number of people" attempted to perform CPR for between 30 and 40 minutes

Yeah, I'm going to wait for the autopsy before I let United off the hook.

Must have got 2 bags of peanut accidentally.

They shouldn't have kept her in the cargo hold.

I'm betting on fatal stress due to emotional support animal withdrawal.

It's a different kind of fatality altogether

United promises to try harder next time.

danielscissorhands: They shouldn't have kept her in the cargo hold.


Or maybe they should have.  She was gonna die either way, and then they could have sold another seat.

The last time I flew United was from Berlin to Newark. The flight was delayed 5 hours and then the connecting flight from Newark to Detroit was delayed 4 hours...WHILE SITTING ON THE TARMACK. Did I mention they lost my bag too and pretty much told me it was my problem to call around to various United employees to find it?

Yeah. That was 7 years ago and I'm still pissed. I would rather crawl across country through broken glass than EVER fly United again.

"The bad news is that someone died and, to a lesser extent, we now have to divert to Ireland."

"The good news is that the plane will no longer be flying to New Jersey."

Although, it was merely postponing the inevitable for those poor passengers.

Sad but this line from the story made me chuckle:

"The pilots also did a great job with the landing under the circumstances."


I didn't realize that having a dead body on board would affect the landing? Unless of course the dead body is the pilot.

They didn't pay the stay alive fee did they?

Took an early flight out of Logan; wife had an overweight bag to check, full of business materials; she tried to pay the excess fee with a credit card...and the United gate agent wouldn't let her borrow her pen, to sign their own farking slip.

If they can't afford pens, it makes you wonder what important stuff they're skimping on.

Fortunately, I dug out my own pen before my wife went into a caffeine-less rage and throttled her :)

The passenger, identified as a 71-year-old woman, is reported to have suffered a cardiac arrest, according to the Irish Sun. However, a "post-mortem examination" will be conducted at a hospital in Limerick.

There once was a lass on a plane
Whose chest started giving her pain
"This lady is dead," the examiner said,
"From a heart attack, simple and plain."

Bad news, grandma died.  Worse news, her body was dropped off in a country no one planning on going to.  Worst news, you have to pay to transport body.

The airline dropped her off there, they should retrieve it, and finish transporting her.  She paid for her ticket, Germany to Ireland wasn't the deal.

Since others already wrote Limericks, I'll ask what's up with the quotation marks instead.   Are they just going to poke her corpse with sticks and call it a day?

Did he look like a guitar or something?

I can't believe someone hasn't beaten me to it.

"It's a different kind of fatality"
