It’s a Big Building Full of Generals…*

As I read the post-debate commentaries, I can’t help but be struck by similarities to something, somewhere.

But where?

Then it struck me.

“Airplane!” 1980.

Surely I’m kidding!

I’m not kidding. And don’t call me Shirley!

It’s the sequence of news readers and headlines ending with the National Enquirer headline, “Boy Trapped in Refrigerator Eats Own Foot!”

If you’ll excuse me, I’m going to turn off the networks and watch my “Airplane!” DVD.


*”It’s a message from headquarters!”

“Headquarters! What is it?”

“It’s a big building full of generals, but that’s not important right now.”
