Leaving on a Jet Plane

I’m posting this from gate 1 of the Greater Peoria Regional Airport. I love this place.

It’s almost always a ghost town, so I made it from the front door, through check-in, past security, and to the gate in less than five minutes. Their wall outlets are easily accessible from the seats, and they have free wireles throughout the concourse. They also have an oddball radio station which just went from Neil Diamond to The Kinks to Zager & Evans.

People are starting to accumulate at the gate, but just a few minutes ago there were only two other people here. That worked in my favor when I received an email loaded with mock demotivational posters that about brought me to to tears. Because I have nothing better to do (actually, I could be writing/plotting, but procrastination is a bitch), I thought I’d share my favorites here. Enjoy.

First, some inspired Photoshop:

Why didn’t Wizard World have one of these?

I used to see this guy on Chicago television. Never pegged him for a perp!

Because fat people have weddings, too:

Ten seconds later, this man was dead:

Finally, I give you my favorite.
