Hilarious Reactions to Romney's Airplane Windows Comment

When Romney wondered why airplane windows can't be opened, the Twitterosphere erupted with responses.

It started with  this:

When you have a fire in an aircraft, there’s no place to go, exactly, there’s no —  and you can’t find any oxygen from outside the aircraft to get in the aircraft, because the windows don’t open. I don’t know why they don’t do that. It’s a real problem.So it’s very dangerous. And she was choking and rubbing her eyes. Fortunately, there was enough oxygen for the pilot and copilot to make a safe landing in Denver. But she’s safe and sound.

And got worse from there:

If you're sucked out of an open airplane window, just go to the emergency room. #romneymemesunited

If airplane windows don't roll down, how does the pilot stick his head out the window to make sure his dog is okay?  http://t.co/...

Roll down the window of the passenger to your right if they are unable to do so themselves.
