Boeing today announced that the production line of its much-heralded 787 Dreamliner will be shut down until such time as the plane can be built in a way so that it can actually fly. After months of recalls due to various defects, it became obvious that the futuristic plane was just not ready.
Corporate spokesperson, Patty Panquake had this to say during a media briefing, "We learned the hard way that we can't build jet liners out of recycled plastic water bottles and aluminum beer cans. It's been a tough lesson and one we will take to heart as we seek to begin again... and hopefully, soon, see this plane take to the skies."
Elsewhere, Boeing is still developing a new bomber for America's Strategic Air Forces. Soon to be designated XB-13, the new stealth bomber will be constructed from old mouse pads, used keyboard shells and cardboard boxes. The Pentagon has already invested close to $47 billion into this prototype and is confident that no one, anywhere, will see the thing coming.
