Blog Air Charter Flight.
Ah yes, 'Blog Air', in its latest attempt to diversify, to try new markets in the blogging sky, has come up with the charter flight. All seats are in the same class. No distinction, just a no-frills experience where all bloggers are treated the same.
And so, what happened next on the inaugural flight of Blog Air charter? Thought you'd never ask. Due to some misunderstanding, some bloggers were caught unaware and had no idea that it was a charter flight. Chaos and confusion ensued.
A self-obsessed, self-promoting blogger ended up sitting beside a shy, humble and oh so unassuming blogger. The self-obsessed, self-promoting blogger went on and on and on...about how great they were and how important it was to check out the links on their blog that linked back to all their other fabulous, must read postings. The shy, humble and oh so unassuming blogger, fell asleep. This was an outrage! How dare anybody not pay attention to them!
An alleged comedy blogger ended up sitting beside a sarcastic blogger. The alleged comedy blogger proceeded to bore the hell out of the sarcastic blogger with their so-called comedy. 'Hey friend! My comedy has been compared to that comedy 'genius', Russell Brand!' 'Oh?' replied the sarcastic blogger, I'm thrilled for you to be compared to Russell Brand, a comedy genius who looks like a reject from a "Pirates of the Caribbean" audition. Well done, you!'
And horror of horrors. A crude dude blogger who insisted that almost every other word was some sort of Anglo-Saxon derivative, was sitting beside one of those most exciting of bloggers. Yes, the crude dude blogger was sitting beside a lady blogger who wrote such incredibly riveting stuff about how she, the hubby and the kids went to McDonald's and had an extra portion of fries! She starting telling the crude dude blogger about the thrilling, adventurous life she led. She even mentioned that her next posting was about how she put some extra chocolate chips in the cookies! The crude dude blogger said, 'That's f**king awesome! F**king fantasy! I bet you and that hubby of yours had some right f**king orgies in your kitchen!' To which she replied, 'No, not really, but he just loves to add to some extra cream to my coffee.'
And then there was the 'extremely popular' blogger with well over a zillion followers, sitting beside a blogger with very few followers. Now then, the blogger with over a zillion followers had only a couple of comments on their latest posting. This same blogger's icon could be seen all over the blogging world and they would leave token comments stating, 'Great post! Thanks for sharing. I follow your blog.!' The blogger with very few followers had several comments on their site. This might just tell you something.
Anyway, the blogger with over a zillion followers discovered that the blogger beside them had only a few followers. The zillion followers blogger yelled over at the flight attendant. 'Excuse me, this must be a mistake! Get me a seat next to somebody who is popular like me!' 'Sorry sir', stated the flight attendant, 'this is a charter flight and all are seated equally. However, the exit door can be found just over there.'
Aha! Look who's the pawlet, sorry, who's the pilot of Blog Air Charter Flight. Yes indeed, it's Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest airline pilot!
'Hello bloggers, this is your captain speaking. Captain Penny. Welcome to this charter flight on the blogger's favourite airline, Blog Air. We are cruising at an altitude of 37,000 feet and expect to arrive at 'Blogland' international airport at approximately six P.M., local time
