Sitting in an airplane on a tarmac in Detroit, lifelong Brooklynite Robert Sayegh turned to his seatmate and said, "What's taking so fucking long to close the overheard compartments?" Shortly thereafter, the pilot turned the airplane around. Police removed Sayegh from the plane for being "disruptive."
Sayegh may sue Atlantic Southeast Airlines. He was merely speaking in his native tongue!
"It wasn't like I stood up like a crazy maniac and was screaming, 'Move the plane!'" said Sayegh, who said he grew up in Brooklyn where "we curse as adjectives."
Foul-mouthed Brooklynites are the new flying imams. Free Brooklyn! Free fuck!
