What were you thinking, Southwest? You were fooled by the name, huh?

I’ve got a secret crush on Silent Bob.  If you don’t know who that is, you’ve got issues.  But just in case, he’s none other than Kevin Smith.

Still stumped? Get some culture, jack ass.

He’s got wit.  He’s got class.

Okay, maybe he’s slightly lacking in the class department.

In any case, he’s got way more class than Southwest Air, who kicked him off a flight for being too fat.  No lie.  They deemed him a flight risk.

I know… I know.  I hate celebrity news.  Kevin Smith happens to be one of the few celebrities I have respect for.  Cause he doesn’t pretend to not be who he is and that’s really flipping cool.

Last night, as I was crawling into bed, M says, “Oh shit.  Southwest is fucked.”

I said, “Why?” (Duh?)

And he read me Mr. Smith‘s tweet:

Dear @SouthwestAir – I know I’m fat, but was Captain Leysath really justified in throwing me off a flight for which I was already seated?

And that’s just the beginning.  Even Neil Gaiman got involved, tweeting:

@ThatKevinSmith http://twitpic.com/1340gw – Dear @southwestair, *I* would gladly sit next to @thatkevinsmith on a plane. We are mortal enemi

And it’s hit SlashDot.

Southwest, I’d suggest you quit while you’re ahead.  Just sayin’.
