ATLANTA – A Delta baggage worker got a bit of a fright before Halloween when she opened a jetliner's cargo door and found a cheetah running loose amid the luggage. Two cheetahs were being flown in the cargo area of a Boeing 757 passenger flight from Portland, Ore., to Atlanta on Thursday when one escaped from its cage, Delta spokeswoman Betsy Talton said Friday.

I’m not sure this would be any more wild and dangerous than a plane full of cougars.

Nice to see that they are going to my home town zoo, Memphis.
While much of the city is going into the toilet, the zoo is becoming one of, if not the top zoo in the country.

It'll be OK. Everyone knows that cheetahs never win.

The good news for passengers: The escaped cheetah didn't damage any of their luggage.

The even better news for the baggage handlers is none were eaten.

I’m just wondering if Chester were among the renegade cheetahs. If so, it might shed some light on my missing shipment of Cheetos. Dang it, you can’t trust ANYONE anymore!

The Cheat's less admirable qualities include being addicted to cigarettes...

This line initially confirmed my thought that the article was about Obama. Then I saw this...

Despite these issues, ladies are often attracted to The Cheat...

...and realized that it was probably about BJ Clinton.

Thanks for tracking down the perp. Hopefully my Cheetos are recovered soon. Though if BJ got a hold of them, they're long gone.

And what is funny about that is that the Memphis Zoo, not all that many years ago, was considered one of the WORST Zoos in the country. But money, time, and hard work as brought it back up to a real zoo. I’m going to try and get by there with the girls some time in the no-so-distant future.

Cheetahs were pets long ago. I don't know if they're pets for anyone today. They are beautiful but where could you let it run?

That link takes you to a great IMDB quotes page. But tell me, what's this "Snakes on a Plane" movie about?
