    Turtle Parade at JFK

    Maybe they were looking for the Mermaid Parade at Coney Island?

    Dozens of flights were delayed at John F. Kennedy Airport after about 150 turtles crawled onto the tarmac in search of beaches to lay their eggs, aviation authorities said.

    The parade of slow-moving diamondback terrapins began about 6:45 a.m. Wednesday.

    Ron Marsico, spokesman for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, told 1010 WINS staff went out between takeoffs to remove the turtles.

    I shared the link with my family via Facebook and it was a hit.

    My niece "saw" my turtle parade link and raised me a duck ramp:

    Yeah way to go turtles.

    I don't think I would mind having my flight held up for turtles.
    When you are up to your arse in alligators it is difficult to remember you were only meant to be draining the swamp.
