First - Those gorillas won't fit in one-quart bags - need to be a gallon, at least....

Homeland security is on the lookout for guerillas that are preparing to fly.

Are they flying tourist or business class? Enquiring minds want to know.

Second - poor babies... And who would eat somebody who would look you in the eye and think "This is a relative?" (that would be the gorilla thought, of course...)

inu, Izan, Oyin and Abbey were all lightly tranquilized as they were loaded into giant wooden crates Thursday for the 18-hour journey to their new home.

they must've joined the other travelers at the airport lounge, preflight.

So they were flying tourist or coach class with the rest of us working slobs.

I prefer to fly lightly tranquilized, myself.

Gorillas prepare to fly to Cameroon?

"Did you pack all your bags yourself?"

"Ooook."

"Have your bags been unattended by you at any point since you packed them?"

"Ooook."

"Could you take off that fur coat and put it through the X-ray machine, please?"

"Ooook."

"Oh, of course you can't, never mind. Would you like a frequent flyer card?"

Heavily tranquilized (me) and gun aimed at my head (someone sober) is the only way you could get me to fly.

I do like to imagine the gorillas sitting in first class, drink in hand, checking out the inflight magazine.

Amer, just curious, how did you get to Paris ?

By train. I suspect you really want to know how I got to the European continent. First, I had a job offer, Second, I had long wanted to live in Europe (predating my flying phobia), Third, I took tranquillizers, and Fourth, it long before 9/11, so even though I was still terrified, I was somewhat less terrified than I would be now.

I wasn't always afraid of flying. Enjoyed it on my first trip to Europe in '76. Then in December '77, our university basketball team...well. I never trusted airplanes after that.
