Poor, poor pitiful me

Via The Kraalspace, by way of Blazing Cat Fur:

Ooooh, it was SOOOO scary, having to land in the Hudson River in an emergency! I was reduced to a "tense mental state"! Therefore, Maybe I should sue!

"Joe Hart, a salesman from Charlotte who suffered a bloody nose and bruises, says he 'would like to be made whole for the incident.'

"It's too soon after the accident to determine what emotional distress he has suffered, he says."



*rubbing hands, striding up and down*

Buddy. Pal. Emergency plane landings are, without doubt, scary.

Scary stuff happens. Especially when there are risks involved -- such as plane travel.

To quote Super Chicken: You knew the job was dangerous when you took it.

Dude -- I'm a woman, who has traveled all over the world, many times in military aircraft that has felt like it is going to fall apart at any moment. On one commercial flight, an entire tire assembly had blown out, necessitating all of us bending over and clutching our ankles in the "crash" position. SCARY STUFF HAPPENS.

You're a guy, having experienced the consequences of ordinary risk. Instead of congratulating yourself -- and boosting your testosterone thereby -- at having made it through a tough take, you're whingeing and moaning about your "mental state" and contemplating litigation.

There is a name for the likes of you -- man or woman. And I don't have to say it.

Is that word p**sy?

I believe this is what Kathy Shaidle might refer to as veritable 'beta-male' action.

But your answer was closer to the mark ;)
