Colonel: What is it, son?

Radar Operator: I don't know, sir, but it looks like a giant--

Jet Pilot: Dick! Dick, take a look out of starboard.

Co-Pilot: Oh my God, it looks like a huge--

Bird-Watching Woman: Pecker!

Bird-Watching Man: [raising binoculars] Where?

Bird-Watching Woman: Over there. What sort of bird is that? Oh goodness, it's not a bird, it's--

Army Sergeant: Privates! We have reports of an Unidentified Flying Object. It has a long, smooth shaft, complete with--

Baseball Umpire: Two balls! [looking up from game] What is that? It looks just like an enormous--

Colonel: Johnson!

Radar Operator: Yes, sir?

Colonel: Get on the horn to British Intelligence and let them know about this.

This is really funny. Nice innuendo too.

What was that movie? Airplane?

"We have clearance, Clarence"
"Roger, Roger."
"What's our vector, Victor?"

"Surely, you're not serious."
"I am serious. And don't call me Shirley."

Ted: "We're bombing the storage depots at Dachary at 0800 hours. We'll be coming in from the north, below their radar."
Elaine: "When will I see you again?"
Ted: "I can't tell you that, it's classified."

"Auntie Em! Auntie Em! It's a twister!"

"Have you ever been in a Turkish prison?"

"The fog is getting thicker...and Leon's getting LARGER!"

Billy to Co-Pilot (Kareem): "My dad says you don't run up and down the court fast enough".
Co_Pilot: "The hell I don't!!"
Pilot: "So Billy, you like gladiator movies??"
Pilot: "Billy, have you ever seen a grown man naked?"

"The hosptial? What is it?"
"It's a big building with patients, but that's not important right now."

"Cut yourself a pro slick!"
"Smo fo butter layin me to the bone. Jackin' me up...tightly"
"Excuse me, but I speak Jive"

"What do you make of this?"
"Well, I can make a HAT, or a brooch, or a pterodactyl!"
Agreed. . .js5280

One of the best movies ever, never get tired of watching it. I love all things Zucker/Abrahams/Zucker.

Agreed. . .AllisonHayes
Jul 23, 2002 6:59 AM
What I meant to say is that your write-up was better than anything I could do and that it was comparable to Airplane...

Great stuff!
Have to disagree with you now. . .js5280

I think your posts are some of the funniest and most original here at the RBR. I'm just spouting off other's work. We do seem to share the same sense of humor (and Myers-Briggs if memory serves) I just wanted to say good luck, we're all counting on you ;-)

"That guy is a menace to himself and everything else in the air! ...yes, birds too!"

Doctor: "How soon until you can land this plane"
Pilot: "I can't tell"
Doctor: "You can tell me, I'm a doctor"
Pilot: "No, I mean, I'm not sure"
Doctor: "Can't you take a guess?"
Pilot: "Well... not for another two hours"
Doctor: "You can't take a guess for another two hours?"

Joey: "Hey... you're Kareem Abdul Jabar (sp?) you play for the Los Angles Lakers!"
Co-pilot: "I'm sorry son, you must have me confused with someone else. My name is Roger Murdock. I'm the co-pilot."
Joey: "It IS you! I watch you all the time, my dad has season tickets!"
Co-pilot: "I think it's time for you to go back to your seat now, Joey"
Pilot: "No, he's not bothering anyone!"
Joey: "I think you're the greatest, but my dad says your don't work hard enough on defense, and most of the time you don't even run down court. And he says you don't really try, unless it's the play-offs"
Co-pilot: "The hell I don't!!"

"The white zone is for unloading and loading of passengers only. There is no stopping in the white zone"
"The red zone is for unloading and loading of passengers only. There is no stopping in the red zone"
"The white zone has ALWAYS been for unloading and loading of passengers, why would it change now?"
"Listen Betty, don't start up with your white zone shit again"

"I haven't seen anything this bad since that Ronald Reagan film."

Boy: "excuse me, I happened to be passing by, and was wondering if you'd like some coffee."
Girl: "Of course! Wont you sit down?"
Boy: "Thank you. Cream?"
Girl: "No thanks, I take it black. Like my men"
I actually remeber seeing that last year - and the female part!jose_Tex_mex
Jul 22, 2002 8:32 PM
I remember seeing that drawn out in the mountains last year. If this picture was from this year then I guess we have a repeat offender. Last year though they had a female counter part - guess she couldn't make it this year.
I saw the female, put that pic up!! (nm)african

i remember that, great shot from the helicopterrufus

tour roads. Maybe thats why American networks have been hesitant to transmit it :-) I've been paying attention and have seen plenty of drawings like that since the start of the tour and in the 2001 year tour.
i think its coolSpirito
Jul 22, 2002 10:21 PM
.... i think its more mysterious and humorous than corn circles although last years one's on the alps were more artistic ... almost Keith Haring-esque.

at least its pointed in the right direction and ancient civilisations used the same symbol in reference to strength and masculinity so its at least fitting. perhaps culturally its a subliminal urge to use simple, global and primal symbols.

i guess lance was offended as the symbol used was in reference to all the other competitors and wishes that a true artist had painted a "modified" version specific to him. :-)

Poor form Spirito! :o( nmspyderman
Jul 22, 2002 11:24 PM
no way ... political & social comment + low brow = cool NmSpirito
Jul 23, 2002 12:05 AM
LOL... Agreed, on first read "Low brow" part stood out. :o) nmspyderman

Symbolic?Juanmoretime
Jul 23, 2002 1:42 AM
Maybe it's a message that is related to drug use in the tour. If your a user you definitely are lacking in the baggage department.
Sure. Tends to stand for the same things cross-culturally.A true128

diplomat....with, of course, the lovely and talented Attache.

Robin Williams rides with US Postal on the off day!! What a coup!
Symbolic? huh? <i>Maybe this was a commercial for Viagra?</i>AllisonHayes
Jul 23, 2002 5:52 AM
Those commercials are everywhere these days--why not the tour too?

hmm, tour de lance maybe?
could be seen as insensative, but its certainly ironicoff roadie

Lance leads on a course grafitoed with symbols of masculine fertility....
Reminds me of my local runGator
Jul 23, 2002 9:55 AM
On this seven-mile loop that I ran for years, etched in the sidewalk on the last rise was an enormous male unit, followed by an even more enormous woman's unit, followed for good measure by an equally enormous obscene gesture with "F@CK YOU!" written in two-foot tall letters beneath. It was at the hardest part of the run, and it never failed to put a smile on my face and the spring back in my step.

So vandals, if you're out there, I'd like to thank you for making my life just a little more special.
