Oh. Okay.

Anyone who pays even a little attention to current events has heard of the guy who, after getting bonked on the head by a piece of luggage and cursed by a passenger in violation of the "stay in your seats until told otherwise" edict, decided he had been abused enough and chose to exit by the inflated slide.

What tickles me no end is how that event becomes a starting point for all manner of stories. This one got me, big time. If you were forced to choose, words unread, between these two people and assigning one the label, "crazy" and the other, "really important guy whose opinion matters to me" would you have chosen as did US Weekly?
Maybe it's just me. I'd rather sit down to share a bite or a beer with the guy on the right.

Pour a glass for me, too.

I'm not a fan of either, but the guy on the left looks pretty harmless to me. He just has really bad taste in ties and hairstyles and might be having a bad day. In the facial expression of the guy on the right, I see an unnatural, clenched smile that might be holding in (but just barely) a lot of anger. He scares me more.
