With all the security and restrictions it was only a matter of time before the airline industry went to the dogs.

Ok, enough of the jokes. This ends very bad and is a tragedy. What you don't see in this pic is the pilot is non other then Del the Cat.

American Airlines in an effort to increase revenue has added a new class for passengers called the Pomeranian class...only passengers with a Pomeranian will be allowed, passengers get a snack and bone to chew on.....

The airline doesn't serve peanuts on this flight.

Instead, the passengers each receive a BarkBox full of dog toys.

Mass immigration of Pomeranians trying to beat the rumored ban against immigrants from Pomerania, because of "poor vetting" by that region.

Yes, "White Hound Bus" movie title is more catchy than "Grey hound bus 754 New York to Los Angeles of the Damned"

His cousin Bubba, I suspect, as there's a bit of tan-coloured fur under that hat.

Or it is Del and that hat needs a good washing.

Prime minister said to "Send the Pommies home." and someone took him seriously.

(Aussie slant: "Pommies" is a (tongue in cheek derogatory) term used to describe People from the British Islands. I was taught it came from the P.O.M.E. brand on the prisoner's clothing being an abbreviation for Prisoner Of Mother England. That could be an urban myth since those already here were mostly ex-prisoners anyway.)

I knew it was a train (planes don't usually have sky lights), but "Caption This" is where we post our comedic genius. So if we comment and turn a train into a plane or bus and our peers think it's funny enough to award G.A.'s, who cares? We are all lucky that I didn't post something about this being an extended Amish wagon. Amish Pups gone Bad.

I see we are getting bored because we didn't get a "Caption This" this week. What gives?
