Too much luggage?

While the pilots were going over their checklist, the plane started to lift off the ground. After a few seconds of panick, the pilots calmed down when they realised they hadn't even started the engines. Further investigation found that Mrs. Y. Poulter of Dorset, England, had packed everything, including the kitchen-sink, on a recent holiday trip.

What the article omitted to explain was that the problem was caused by an excess of chocolate, xmas cake, xmas puddings and other goodies being flown out to a deserving family in Colorado Springs.

Actually, if you look closely at the cockpit, it seems the pilots have confiscated the xmas cake, xmas puddings and other goodies meant for that 'other' deserving family in Colorado Springs.

I would have thought that as the gentleman of the 'deserving family' was brought up to share he would have done so, especially to another such deserving cause.

The Gentleman of the 'Deserving Family' was brought up to share, but that doesn't mean that one is stupid to share such a rare and valuable asset.

In defense of the gentlemen of the 'deserving family', I have to admit that he does share his Miller Lite at times. However, I have often suspected he has cases of Guinness Extra Stout hidden away from his 'deserving' guests.
