How else can anyone explain why two smartish people do completely dumb sh*t at the airport?
First there was Sun Starship from MIT who went to Logan with a LiteBrite tee-shirt and then instead of answering any questions from the Staties like "hey, what are those wires for?" she kept walking.
She's lucky she is still alive.
And then there is Ermiyas A. Asfaw from Washington DC who really had no clue about the complete lack of any sense of "hue-mah" (humor for those of you not from here) of every airport employee and State Troopah.
Seriously, if you express any tendency towards mirth, Massport will not allow you onto airport grounds.
It seems that Asfaw made an un-funny non-joke with the intent to antagonize an airline employee.
Honestly, would Al Qaeda announce themselves and their plans in English to some numbnut from Eastie?
Like Dean would say: I DOWDIT.
But you piss off that same numbnut he is going to call over the Staties. And then you're really f*cked because they've all had their humor glands surgically removed at State Troopah School.
And Asfew has no excuse - he is from Washington DC for crying out loud! I bet he would never said that at Dulles.
So it must be the fumes. Or the water.
