As a cultured and refined gentleman with a sophisticated sense of humor, I find it hilarious that the English words “duty” and “doodie” are pronounced in almost exactly the same way. And I never noticed until I saw the movie “Wreck-It Ralph” in which they managed to insert a whole lot of jokes of that kind! So, ever since I saw that movie, I have to chuckle when I hear the word “duty time”. (Not that I’d hear that word a lot, as a cartoonist!)
Skydiving seems to attract a certain type of people. But it’s big on my “things to do before I die” list, even though I’d only be tandem-skydiving. I seem to be putting it off though. One of my excuses is that I get motion sick easily. A friend of mine once went tandem skydiving, got really sick on the way up and puked on the way down. Of course, the air flow then transported her lunch back to the poor instructor… Seems like skydiving instructor is a risky job in more ways than people know!
Well this kid sure has figured it out! But seriously, most pilots didn’t choose their carreer path for monetary reasons. If you want to get rich quick this way, you might want to reconsider your options.
You might want to consider the path I took. I chose my life of being a cartoonist solely for the filthy riches this profession provides! The hardships of having to draw funny chickens are easily forgotten every time I enter my Money Bin to roll around in cash.
Sorry for the slight delay with todays comic, but I just got back from a weekend trip to Berlin!
So, of course we can’t let a big event in aviation go by without Roost-Air being affected in some way. I was actually stuck for hours in Burbank the day after this happened since so many flights got cancelled (I always get stuck on the way home btw, never on the way out where it wouldn’t matter since I have to work and get paid for it anyways….). Fortunately sitting at an airport with nothing to do always leaves some time to come up with new ideas. But since Chuck and Julio don’t actually fly pressurized aircraft we had them taking advantage of the whole situation.
And since Hans’s main expertise is with yogurt they may be able to milk this one for a while…
I used to tell people “Yeah, of course I have jumped out of airplanes before!” This strip kind of shows what I meant by that. In reality I am pretty scared of jumping out of a perfectly safe aircraft while it’s actually flying. But it’s on my bucket list…
A REMINDER for everybody btw: We have Christmas Cards!! Check them out in our shops and order them soon!! The post offices are getting busy already with Christmas traffic.
I have flown my share of “reasonably airworthy” airplanes and helicopters in the past. I don’t even want to elaborate on those stories on this website since our mission is to “attract” folks to aviation, not scare them. But here is what my brother did with some of the stories I told him……
