Spreading the word... hallelujah!
« on: August 18, 2006, 04:26:54 AM »
There's a largish flight school which uses the hotel in which I'm currently staying (in St. Louis), and they gather in the lobby in the
evenings to study and gab. I felt somehow compelled to join them (odd, eh?) and at some point I mentioned this week's strip.
I got blank stares, "Who's Chuck?"
I told 'em, and hopefully they'll see the light.

Do you remember the cryogenic room from where Austin Powers was taken out in the first episode?
Lo and behold! you've the answer! :)
I give that landing a 9 . . . on the Richter scale.

Thanks for spreading the gospel!  |:)\ After all, converting the infidels and enlighten their hitherto underprivileged minds is not only a good deed in itself but also promotes aviation safety! Now they know who Chuck is, and how to react if he ever comes into their airspace!  ;) ;D

In a rapidly expanding radial pattern?  ;D

Hmm, on a strip, the controllers could notice a 'trend' like that, so they decide the guy in the middle MUST be Chuck.

Once again. Two pilots, a young fellow and a very.... very attractive young woman were checking in to the hotel here.
I called out in a hoarse stage whisper, "Read Chicken Wings"
I don't think they noticed.
I walked normally to the nearby elevator and went in. As the doors were closing, I repeated, "Read.............. Chickenwings!"

I ran into 'em upstairs and told 'em about the site. I think I need to work on my amateur theatrics.

Hey, how about a Chuck mask and a big sign? I can wander around the airports wearing both.  ;D

Great idea!

Maybe we can get some "chicken-suits" made and have various people all over the country put them on and taxi up
in an airplane with them.... ;) ;D

That should be chicken suits in character, so basically a pilot with a tail and a Chuck head, and a mechanic with a Julio head and then of course Hans.... I think my current shape would be suitable for that, and since I can't fly either (cry) then that would work :D
