Mushroom Cloud

Chopper Pilot Wanted To Keep Mum

A Thai air force pilot has been suspended from flying duties after allegedly landing his helicopter in the countryside to collect wild mushrooms for his mother. Villagers in the western province of Kanchanaburi reported the incident to police. The helicopter had circled a jungle clearing before landing, and when the villagers went to investigate, they found that the pilot had gone. When the pilot eventually returned, he told them he had been collecting mushrooms for his mother.

FOOTNOTE: Spore loser.

Hi Birdman,

I agree - and I would have done anything for my Mum - but I donlt think I would have used Governmenr property!!

I think his motives were great, but his method was slightly flawed!

Cheers

Hi Kate,

I think he was brilliant - but heshould have walked or driven there, perhaps!

A chopper's a bit conspicuous!

Cheers

It just popped into my brain!

Hi Rachel,

I was actually going to use a different line - and then ``spore loser'' just occurred to me.

I'm so glad it made you smile!

Do keep in touch

Hi Katherine,

Only the best sons go mushroom-picking for their mums.

Hi Bradley,

You;re not going to believe this. That was exactly what I had as the original Footnote, and then I changed it at the last minute.

We're on the same wavelength - but we both knew that!

Cheers

Hi Cowgirl,

That comment absolutely cracked me up.

Maybe he should have taken your GPS equipment instead!!

Cheers

Hi Rebecca,

I admire his thoughtfulness - but I think he should have driven there instead!

Then again, I guess he never thought he;d get sprung, poor bloke.

Cheers - and do keep in touch.
