We Love to Pee, and It Shows

"594" is part of the registration &q...Image via WikipediaCrosscheck and I recently compared experiences getting doused with fluids in mid-flight. A woman next to her sneezed a large volume of probably illness-laden spittle onto her. For my part, a careless FA decided to pop the pull tab on a can of Heineken about 5 inches from my right temple, sending a frothy spray of Dutch lager into my eye and ear.

But we have nothing on a kid who was unlucky enough to fly a JetBlue redeye from Oregon to New York.

If you haven't heard this story yet, prepare for a doozy.

A teenage passenger on a JetBlue redeye was detained after landing because he peed on an 11-year old girl during the flight. The New York Post tells it like this:
The youngster was traveling with her sister and dad, and had been left alone for a few minutes while the others used the lavatories. Robert Vietze, 18, of South Warren, Vt., stumbled from his seat five rows behind her and emptied his bladder, a witness said.
"I was drunk, and I did not realize I was pissing on her leg..." He later claimed to have consumed eight alcoholic beverages.
Yeah, uh, OK.

There are a bunch of obvious issues here, but the thing we loved most about the initial version of the story was the phrase embedded in the URL for the NY Post story:

Creep in Jet Stream

Once we were done laughing we logged back in to Interwebs to discover that the nocturnal emitter in question was a member of the US Ski Team, now an ex-member of the US Ski Team.

Insert "US Pee Team" joke here.

To be continued, we are certain.
