The Starfighter is one of my all time favs. Frakkin rocket with wings.

IIRC it was developed by renowned designer Kelly Johnson, who also engineered the U2 and SR71.
The story went that when the F104 was rolled out for the Secretary of the Defense, he gaped at it and blurted, "Where are the wings?"

During filming of Airplane, Leslie Nielsen used a whoopee cushion to keep the cast off-balance. Hays said that Nielsen "played that thing like a maestro"

You're right it was a Kelly Johnson "Skunkworks" project.

Toonces - Don't ask me, I just close my eyes and take it.

Gus - I use sweatpants with flannel shorts to soak up my crotch sweat.

Banzai Cat - There is no "partial credit" in grammar. Like anal sex. It's either in, or it's not.

Mirth - We learned long ago that they key isn't to outrun Star, it's to outrun Gus.

Martok - I don't know if it's possible to have an "anti-boner"...but I now have one.

Gus - Celery is vile and has no reason to exist. Like underwear on Star.
