Clueless Cellphone Users

"Funniest headline of the week" award goes to The Register:

HELLO... I'M ON A PLANE...YES...A PLANE!!
Bad news for regular fliers

Okay, maybe it's only funny if you've heard someone doing this. For me, it was being at a spectacular scenic vista at the Grand Canyon and seeing someone get out of his car, pull out a cellphone, exclaim to his companion "Hey, I'm getting reception here", poke at it, and proceed to spend the next five minutes shouting inanities like:

I'M AT THE GRAND CANYON!

THE G R A N D C A N Y O N!

THE CANYON! YOU KNOW, THE BIG HOLE IN THE GROUND!
YES!

I guess The Register has encountered people like that, too.
