Airplanes go over my head regularly, but it's just been pointed out to me that in the movie Airplane!, there is a constant drone of a propeller engine in the background, despite being set on a jet. I haven't watched the whole movie since learning this half an hour ago, but both the clips I have watched on youtube this morning have it.

Yes I am serious and don't call me Shirley.
You may quote me on that.

Dandontdare's Bolland Dredd t-shirt went over his head, but not much further.

Oi!

Just dredged up a Johnnystress quote from an old thread:

Quote
gaze into the face of fear

gaze into the fist of dredd (dread)

wordplay- maybe pun isn't correct

All this time and only now I see the double meaning in the prog's most famous quote.
“Men will never be free until the last king is strangled with the entrails of the last priest”

Just realised that Tharg's sister Marg should be pronounced 'Marge'. Otherwise it's not funny.

?!? sorry, I don't understand.

Tharg ends in the hard 'G' as does Marg-- why is Marge, with the different end sound funny?
