  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Enjoy the hilariousness of Airplane!


I have never seen Airplane! Will I find this plugin funny?

First of all, you need to see Airplane! It is a movie considered by critics to be one of the greatest movies of all time. Many would postulate that it is better than The Godfather.

Really? Better than The Godfather?

Yes, really. And don’t question me again.

I heard there is a sequel. Is it any good?

It is hilarious. Much better than anything Steven Spielberg or Martin Scorcese could ever create.

I just watched the movie and I didn’t think it was that great.

You are an idiot.

Is there anything factually incorrect about the movie?

At the real airport, the white zone is for loading and unloading of passengers only, and there’s no stopping in the red zone (except for transit buses).

Surely, that can’t be true.

It is true, and don’t call me Shirley.
