Who’s Your Dufus, Baby?

To say that goofiness is a prerequisite to becoming a Hollywood celebrity would be stating the painfully obvious.

According to, John “Barbarino” Travolta asked his fans to "do their bit" to solve global warming when he appeared at the British premiere of his movie, Wild Hogs.

He apparently emphasized the importance of using “alternative methods of fuel”.

Of course, this was after flying at least 30,000 miles in the past year, producing about 800 tons of carbon emissions, or about 100 times the amount of the average British citizen.

It’s pretty common knowledge that John Revolta, I mean Travolta, is an airplane pilot, and apparently qualified to fly some pretty large aircraft. He’s also an airplane collector, he owns five in all. His collection includes a Boeing 707, three Gulfstream jets, and of course a Lear jet.

He keeps them parked at his private runway at his house in Florida.

A few years ago he piloted his personal Boeing 707 on a 13- city "Spirit of Friendship Tour" for Qantas Airlines, flying to Los Angeles, Auckland, Sydney, Singapore, Tokyo, London, Paris and New York and registering over 35,000 flying miles.

Travolta must have some intelligence, piloting a plane, especially a large jet like a 707 isn’t easy. But then he went on to say that global warming “is a very valid issue, I’m wondering if we need to think about other planets and dome cities.”

Dome cities on other planets?

Well, Travolta does follow the teachings of L. Ron Hubbard; I guess that explains why Travolta is such a dunce, albeit a qualified one.
