"Once again, Earl struggled to stow his carrion luggage.
“There’s also a mention of carry-on luggage. The first time I heard this term I thought they said “carrion,” and that they were bringing a dead deer on board. And I wondered, “What the hell would they want with that? Don’t they have those little TV dinners anymore?” And then I thought, Carry on? “Carry on!” Of course! People are going to be carrying on! It’s a party! Well, I don’t much care for that. Personally, I prefer a serious attitude on the plane. Especially on the flight deck, which is the latest euphemism for cockpit. I can’t imagine why they’d want to avoid a colorful word like “cockpit,” can you? Especially with all those lovely stewardesses going in and out of it all the time.” —George Carlin
