Goat sacrifice fixes aeroplane (really weird news)

Akash Bhairab, the Hindu sky god, following technical problems with one of its Boeing 757 aircraft.

Nepal Airlines, which has two Boeing aircraft, has had to suspend some services in recent weeks due the problem.

While many airlines might choose to tackle the problem by, say, having engineers fix the problem, Nepal Airlines opted for a more goat-centric approach.

The goats were sacrificed in front of the troublesome aircraft Sunday at Nepal's only international airport in Kathmandu in accordance with Hindu traditions, according to an official at the company.

'The snag in the plane has now been fixed and the aircraft has resumed its flights,' said Raju K.C., a senior airline official, without explaining what the problem had been.

Local media last week blamed the company's woes on an electrical fault, rather than a superabundance of goats.

I have a sister that used to manage apartments. One resident tried to burn a sacrificed goat in the fiberglass bath tub. Needless to say, the ritual was not a successful one.

Attention, passengers. There will be a slight delay, nanny goat is in transit and after the sacrifice we’ll be boarding 1st class. Sorry for the delay.

“Obama is in India looking for a witch doctor who can fix Obamacare.”

If Obamacare isn’t fixed (or dumped), there’s going to be a lot of Americans who become sacrificial goats to the arrogance of progressive politicians.

And as the goat lay stabbed, quivering, sputtering and bleeding out on the searing tarmac, under the roar of jet engines and whooping Hindus it was heard to faintly bleat:

“At least I didn’t have to get one of those humiliating TSA body scans.”

No problem; they keep a goat & knife in the emergency kit, in case of in-flight problems.

In any case, that's the in-flight meal taken care of.

They told the aircraft that it was next while they showed what was in store via the goat.

Okay really, who here doesn’t keep a goat and a big knife in their car trunk just in case?

Come on, even on a long trip?
