#Pride Goes Before a Fall

Royal Dutch Airlines failed hilariously when tweeting support for homosexuals, proving the opposite point.

Political Editors · Aug. 9, 2017

Royal Dutch Airlines attempted to show support for homosexuals with a tweet this week saying, “It doesn’t matter who you click with. Happy #PrideAmsterdam.” Unfortunately, it included the above picture — which only reinforces the opposite point that there’s just one way nature intended. The first two seat belts in the picture obviously would not function. Or, as Jim Treacher put more humorously, “Only one of these seat belts will perform the intended function. I realize that noticing this means I’m bigoted against the LGBT community.” Others on Twitter had a field day mocking the unfortunate pic. “I suppose for the top two options, you should just tie the ends together around your waist in an emergency,” tweeted Jim Geraghty.

Another tweeted an imaginary conversation: “Hello, Stewardess? My seatbelt doesn’t work”

“It doesn’t matter who you click with!”

“But… I could die in an accident.”

“Homophobe.”

That about sums it up for this week’s winner of the Non Compos Mentis Award.
