Sumos On A Plane

Remember that time you were on a packed flight, happy to have an empty seat next to you, when a big fat guy got on board last and sat in that middle seat? Imagine what that must be like when 29 Sumo wrestlers get on a plane. These are members of the Hakkaku Stable sumo wrestling organization on their way to training camp. I doubt the flight attendants even tried to get the drink cart down the aisle.

I'm reminded of a line my old radio partner Dave Murray once said on the air: "What two words does a sumo wrestler's wife never want to hear in bed? Missionary position!"
