FUNNY: Space Shuttle Enterprise Fly-Over Inspires Tweets
The retired space shuttle Enterprise made its ceremonial flight over New York City on Friday, resulting in the mass confusion and disappointment of Brooklyn hipsters who expected to see the Star Trek Enterprise (pictured) flying over. But many
older other New Yorkers were so excited to see the baby shuttle carried piggy-back style by the NASA 747 jet that many of them went to the roofs of their office buildings, positioned their iPhones, took one or 37 Instagram pics and then spent the rest of the morning staring at and tweeting said Instagram pics, captioned with messages like these:
