Truth be told, we don’t really give a rat’s rear end about the story of the guy dragged off the United flight, but we couldn’t resist the mental image of Barry being dragged down an aisle while kicking, biting, scratching, weeping, and…as long as we’re enjoying our fantasy…wetting himself.
As far as the actual story goes, the details keep changing – but it seems safe to say that the gentleman pulled from the plane had voluntarily entered the “asshole zone” by not leaving his seat without a fight (hint: when people with guns ask you to do something on a plane, it’s a good idea to do it).
And frankly, the only reason that this is a story is because people got video of the last, most colorful moments of the confrontation…and it’s proved to be more interesting on the vast brainless platforms of social media than other current news stories like, oh, impending nuclear war.
We live in strange and frighteningly superficial times.
