    They ran out of tags for me, much because the powers that be frown on epithets.

    It's actually a mixture of parameters. If your account has been suspended, you get the "Ejection Handle Pulled." XenForo actually lets you use a bunch of silly parameters on this and even then it didn't do all we wanted for our site on the promotions.

    But "taxi to parking" means that you're still on the airfield and in the way . We should have a "flight complete, drinking a beer" thingy.

    Maybe the top one could be,

    “No sh*t, there I was, inverted, smoke on, and cracking open my fifth beer when...”

    Or

    “Tells tales taller than thousand year old redwoods”

    Or

    “Ladies and Gentlemen, Nate Druher”

    Just add the appropriate E. Mercury twist and become “Killer Hangar Queen”
