NEW YORK, NY – US Airways flight 1549 made an emergency water landing in the Hudson River just after 3:30pm yesterday afternoon. Initial reports suggesting the plane struck a flock of geese have been dismissed with the discovery of new evidence confirming that the plane struck and killed the religious icon Flying Spaghetti Monster.
Two observations (aside from the usual, which is that I love the Weekly World News)
1). The fact that the FSM caused the whole thing does not of course detract from the fact that Chesley B. Sullenberger III is a BAMF when it comes to flying an airplane. I mean, check this out:
It’s like he did that every day.
2). This is one reason why I love the Weekly World News:
Some have wondered if Sullenberger’s near miraculous landing was made possible by a last act of magical intervention from Flying Spaghetti Monster. However most experts agree that FSM was far too self absorbed for such an act, and he probably died trying to save himself.
Nice to see that I’m not the only person out there who finds the entire FSM thing mildly tiresome.
