DALLAS -- Two Southwest Airlines pilots have been fired for stripping off all or most of their clothes in the cockpit of their Boeing 737 during flight, even though there is no specific FAA ban on flying naked.

Am I the only one who sees the irony in the fact that it's called a "cockpit"? (RodentsRred@hotmail.com)

Don't fire 'em...transfer 'em to Alaska Airlines. (Baitsmotel6@aol.com)

Ladies and gentlemen, we are experiencing a bit of turbulence...Please bare with us. (Baitsmotel6@aol.com)

A new meaning to "Streaking thru the skies"? (Baitsmotel6@aol.com)

Maybe they were just having a bad air day. (Baitsmotel6@aol.com)

It's legal now...so they just wanted to show off their weapons. (Baitsmotel6@aol.com)

Hey, THEIR version of "going down in a Boeing" is vastly preferable to the alternative. (MooseSpeak@earthlink.net)

It's not their fault... it WAS Flight 69, after all. (MooseSpeak@earthlink.net)

They just wanted to prove they weren't flying by the seat of their pants. (Wenbal@aol.com, WillyTheTunaFish@aol.com, brwneyedcuuty@aol.com)

And speaking of FOX:

Jeez...airplanes, money, alcohol, guns & nudity. It's not an industry, it's a network. (seeker@vcoms.net)

Both will be offered jobs with Hooters airlines though.... (stingray678@yahoo.com)

This has prompted Southwest to use a new ad campaign entitled: We Love Flying, And We Really Know How To Show It. (Brian91884@aol.com)

They misread the map while flying to Butte, Montana. (jaynashvil@aol.com)

Today's winner, Pootybrew@earthlink.net, never did believe those guys were loyal enough to work for peanuts:

Southwest actually fired them for flying united. (Pootybrew@earthlink.net)
