07/01/10 198 W - + 9 - 2 Maggots on a Plane

You'll be hard pressed to read a better opening paragraph this year than this, from yesterday's AP story: "A flight bound for North Carolina was forced to return to the gate in Atlanta after passengers noticed maggots falling from an overhead bin." Google finds more. "Bugs just began to fall out of the overhead compartment," recalled a passenger, and which caused the expected panic.

Another person's account includes the words "fly" and "maggot" and "All of a sudden, I felt somebody flick the back of my hair." The plane never left the ground, and the pilot returned to the gate, declaring a "minor emergency on board." The cause was a container of spoiled meat. Unknown if beef, lamb, chicken, pork, or mystery meat.

Samuel L. Jackson has already been hired for the movie. His catch line is “I have had it with these m_________ maggots on this m_______ plane!”
