27N Repeats Itself – First as Farce and then as Slapstick

Did you hear the one about the Chinese-made trainer jet that crashed in the air show to commemorate the failed putsch?!

Thing is, el Chigüire got ahead of himself this time, cuz that’s not even the punchline. The punchline is that the rescue helicopter they sent in to save the pilots got tangled up with their parachutes and itself crashed.

Man, I wouldn’t want to be the guy who gets tapped to go look for them

Mercifully, there were no major injuries which, additionally, means I don’t even feel bad for the big belly-laugh this got out of me.
