It would have been a tragedy if the plane had exploded but how funny is it that it started a fire in his crotch. I wish I could have been there to stomp out the fire. I have a size 15 shoe and I know how to use it.
Is it possible that it was a terrorist practical joke?
I didn't hear about this part of the story. But I do think it's quite ironic, that he tried to do something so horribly serious, in such a way that made him out to be a dunkoff when it failed.
That part is as funny as heck! Not necessarily a practical joke I wouldn't say, as it was quite a serious crime, but quite funny when you laugh at the idiocracy of the situation.
