You probably remember KTVU’s royal eff up with reading obviously fake Asian names for the pilots of the Asiana crash. Names like “Wi To Lo” and “Ho Lee Fuk”.

It looks like a Korean news agency is having some fun at KTVU’s expense. After the landing gear failure of the Southwest flight at LGA they showed this graphic with American pilot names “Captain Kent Parker Wright”, “Co-Captain Wyatt Wooden Workman”.

They even went as far as making up fake names for people to interview. Flight instructor “Heywood U. Flye-Moore” and skeptical passenger “Macy Lawyers”.

Well played Korean TV, well played.

Really! Is it too much to ask that the news be a little funnier?

"And reports are in of a fiery inferno over on 9th Street. The first victim has been ID'd as Spanky Warmbottom. Those loveable ambulance chasers from Dewey Cheatam and Howe are rushing to the scene as fast as Russian cabbie Pickup Andopov can get them there. In the meantime, here's our reporter at the scene. So tell us, John, whatcha up to?"

"Makin' smores tonight, Pat!"

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
