Captain: "Yeah"

I'm thinking that's not a big deal, it was close... then:

BIGRO
Captain: "BAGRID"
Me: What the??? "BIGRO? Check"

ALEKI
C: "ALEXIS"
Me: Sure... what the heck "Check"

NIKUK
"NOKUD"
"Check"

UVUNO
"UVILL"
"Check"

ADBAG
"ADGOG"
(Holy crap... that's not even close! Are we going to the same place?")
"Check"

And it went like that for about 10 pages worth...

There will be a day, young troop, that two flights of stairs will look like Everest. Bath tub? No way........ As a former Pantera owner, that is but a fond memory. Tall cars only. For sure no crunchy food...And so it goes. Shoes off at 75? (TSA) Not enough chairs in the world.

Counting twelve blades before ignition switch "on", and then watching the oil coming out of the exhaust hit the leading edge and just go streaming backwards...

The really funny thing is how the turkey and the guy behind him have the exact same facial expression, hair color, and color scheme. Long lost brothers?
