ABC News reports that Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong was kicked off a Southwest Airlines flight for wearing saggy pants.
Armstrong reportedly responded with his usual level of class — by upbraiding the flight attendant with a mug of hostility and a twist of R-rated adjectives:

Now, Fester doesn’t want to get all personal and everything, but BJA is a tool, an environmentalist d-bag, and the most annoying member of a colossally horrific band with a stupid, stupid name, whose shows comprise moronic “songs” infused with a fusillade of f-bombs hurled at their largely pre-teen audience. I mean, come on, there’s no way Fester can respect this androgynous doughboy, let alone fear him:
But back to the story. Look. All the guy had to do was pull his pants up. But he had to front, because he’s such a badass. Fester suspects that, after BJA got kicked off the plane, he went straight to the men’s room, where he burst into tears and had to reapply his mascara.
Next time, maybe he’ll take a page from Al Gore’s playbook and start befouling the atmosphere with private jets. Or maybe he’ll just go away and make everyone else happy.
