O, birdman, where art thou?

Overheard in the Office:
Me: "Huh. Jeb Corliss is banned for life from setting foot in the Empire State Building..."

RX: "Was it all of 'em, or just the one?"

Huh? Paper is dated Today, but the story is dated June 2010?

Sounds like Murdoch and Newscorp need to get some of those "Tools of Satan" Smartphones and figure out just what day it is. There's an App for that, you know.

Bubblehead Les,

It's an old article. I found it through a footnote link in Wikipedia.

He needs to get his fingers out of his nose while in court or the Judge will find him in contempt!

He's the top man in the Language Department...

Given the things that he's done in the meantime, I should think that parachuting the ESB would be a bit passé for him, now, anyway.

I'm not in to that type of risk taking, but any man who gets himself banned from the Empire State Building is O.K. in my book.

*At some point earlier in my life I wanted to jump out of a perfectly good airplane. Then I heard my dads story of doing that... Then I broke both legs and had metal rods put in. Then the doctor told me what would happen unless I had the rods removed. I'm not jumping anytime soon. (One rod is currently irremovable thanks to a broken drill bit)*

My wife still uses "I've said my piece and counted to three."

Matt G said...

He, uh, won't be jumping again soon, apparently. He has a little bit of rehab to do after hitting a mountain in South America this January.

well, you know, with the thrill seeking personality, what goes up must come down...

South Africa. Table Mountain.

Just that fine line between brave and crazy...

I think he's passed that line a while ago, Tam.
