    Young man thrown off plane and arrested because his pants were down near his knees, leaving the underwear exposed, and he refused to pull them up despite several requests. The mom was on TV news last night saying this would be like if flight attendants forced someone to unwrap and remove his turban.

    Well at least we know what side of the family he gets his stupid from.

    Behind just about every asshat kid, there is an excuse-making parent.

    Grief can be a powerful thing.

    I think next funeral I go to, I'll wear my pants down around my ass as a tribute to my fallen comrade.

    People get way too bent out of shape over this.

    The guys wearing their pants low look like idiots. Maybe they are idiots, maybe they aren't. But they usually have long boxer shorts or other shorts on. I've never seen skin exposed.

    If they didn't have the pants on at all and just wore the shorts, no one would bitch.

    Keep in mind, though, they are also sitting next to other people.

    Would you want to sit next to someone wearing just their underwear?

    They aren't wearing just their underwear.

    It's a religious thing to wear their pants near their knees?
    Then Vancouver's postgame riot must have been a religious celebration.

    My wife is a college teacher. She came home laughing one day because a student came into class with his pants down below his ass and she told him to pull them up, saying "I don't want to see your underwear."

    His sincere response: "But Mrs. Joe, they're my best pair."

    It gets better. AP reports the suspect is a juco transfer football player at New Mexico. Think I will camp out to be first in line to read the Fulmer Cup wrapup.

    I kept scrolling to the top to see if that was The Onion.

    I always thought US Airways was the most f*cked up airline for the usual reasons -- old planes, bad service, etc. But this puts them waaaaay over the top.
