Bad day to be a goat

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/south_asia/6979292.stm

Nepal's state-run airline has confirmed that it sacrificed two goats to appease a Hindu god, following technical problems with one of its aircraft.
Nepal Airlines said the animals were slaughtered in front of the plane - a Boeing 757 - at Kathmandu airport.

How long before the fluffy-huggers get all agitated I wonder?

Could this catch on...

Quantas - Kangaroo gets it. Air France - shipment of British Lambs torched on the tarmac. Virgin - ??

Hmmm, does this count as alternative overhaul and maintenance or was it complementary O&M??

I want to be a plane technician for Virgin . . . a dream job. Only problem is, I don't think I can make a new patio on the runway.

Leave the bloody goats and ring boeing
Probably got fed up with "your call is important to us", "your call is currently in a queue", and "if your 757 is fooked, press 5"......and thought sod that for a game of soldiers, pass us me Kukri and get Daisy & Buttercup airside sharpish.

Turkish airline staff did a camel last year to celebrate a new plane. Unfortunately in view of passengers! A bit of fuss over that....

Thursdays.
If it's any day, it'll be a Monday.

Mr Alifi, of Hai Malakal in Upper Nile State, told the Juba Post newspaper that he heard a loud noise around midnight on 13 February 2006 and immediately rushed outside to find Mr Tombe with his goat.

"When I asked him: 'What are you doing there?', he fell off the back of the goat, so I captured and tied him up."
13 February 2006 was a Monday.

M'lud, I rest my case.

They did years ago and RGR were stopped from doing it even though it was part of their religion.

True - if you want to be a goat and get bummed, Thursdays are a good day to be a goat if you just fancy popping into town for some leisurely pineapple shopping.

Cait, I now see where I was wrong. I'm sorry. Thanks for your patience.

I forgot why I never go down the fruit market after Wednesdays.

???? They did a camel? Did they stand on a step ladder to do the beast? My god. What is the world coming to?
