And in the New York Times, a funny article about my son's neighborhood (thanks Barak): "First Person. Park Slope: Where Is the Love?" By LYNN HARRIS. Caption from the article: "...Other neighborhoods have strollers, food co-ops and brownstones. So why is sneering at Park Slope an urban blood sport?"
A guy is sitting in the bar in departures at a busy airport. A beautiful woman walks in and sits down at the table next to him.
He decides because she's that pretty, she's probably an off-duty flight attendant.
So he decides to have a go at impressing her by identifying the airline she flies for.
He leans across to her and says the Delta Airlines motto "We love to fly and it shows".
The woman looks at him blankly. He sits back and thinks up another line. He leans forward again and delivers the Air France motto "Winning the hearts of the world".
Again she just stares at him with a slightly puzzled look on her face.
Undeterred, he tries again, this time saying the Malaysian Airlines motto "Going beyond expectations".
The woman looks at him and says "What the f*ck do you want?"
"Ah!" he says, sitting back with a smile on his face. "EL AL".
