Monty Gives Branson Lesson on Plane Wing; No Structural Damage Reported

I know, predictable fat jokes aren't fair these days now that Monty has dropped so much weight that I did a double take when spotting him under the Big Oak.

So here are four minutes of your life you won't' be getting back. But before you move on, in those four minutes we learn Monty is helping Richard Branson launch the "Swingers Club" (yes, the same Monty who has been dogged by...anyway...). And best of all from the Virgin executive, there was this statement about Monty: "If not the greatest, one of the greatest golfers in the world."

I knew I'd get you to watch!

In 1995, While working on the runway lights and signs at LAX, everyday at 3:30 the Virgin Atlantic flight would leave for Heathrow, and I'd tell all the guys I was working heavy, and I mean heavy overtime with, that come June, I was going to be on that plane flying to Heathrow on the way to St. Andrews.

There is little doubt in my mind that Virgin-Atlantic is THE airline, as it was come that June in 1996 and to my understanding, the service and comfort on the flight has not changed. Also, there is nothing better then having very good looking, very English flight attendant cater to your every need. Oh do I love British women, especially when they all look like Jacqueline Bisset and sound like her too!

Richard Branson = Full Bingo

Is this nonsense what one of the so-called, greatest golfers in the world has 'ascended' to?

Well said, Tommy, well said.
