Child Air Traffic Controller Raises Questions

Recently, a 10-year-old was allowed to become an honorary air traffic controller and clear a plane at JFK.

Most people were horrified, but if we would only institute this as a trend, imagine some of the fun things a kiddie controller could say to the pilots:

"Go ahead, start going. Just don't bump into any other planes or I won't get my allowance!"

"Go really fast like in a Bruce Willis movie!"

"It's time for you to start coming back down because I have to go home and watch Wizards of Waverly Place."

"Could you hold on a minute? I just crapped my pants."
