How Fat Is Too Fat To Fly?

14 Feb

‘Silent Bob’ fat perhaps?

Filmmaker Kevin Smith, fresh from delivering a speech at the Macworld Expo in San Francisco, unleashed his fury on Southwest Airlines after the pilot on Smith’s flight from Oakland to Burbank ejected him for being “too fat to fly” Saturday evening. “I’m way fat, but I’m not there just yet,” Smith wrote on his account after the incident, adding that he was able to lower both arm rests at his seat. “I broke no regulation.”

He’s not as large as people I’ve seen on flights before. Indeed, I’ve seen folk on planes who easily occupied two seats and oozed over into the third. The pilot must not have liked on of ‘Bob’s’ films.

Eglon would never have been let on a plane.  He was so fat, when Ehud shoved the knife through him Eglon’s blubber swallowed it.  Now that’s fat.

I’m betting Southwest will be sorry its pilot did what he did.

    Maybe the pilot was a Reese Witherspoon fan.

    Among other objects of Smith’s ire….
