Tom the Dancing Bug by Ruben Bolling Presents: News of the Times Millionaire Adventurer Forced to End Round-the-World Coach Flight Millionaire Rob Prescott's daring round-the-world airplane journey -- to be made in bold successive coach class flights -- was aborted in a forced landing at Reykjavik, Iceland. Rob: Hot towel...cashews...quick! He trained for the mission for weeks, eating only Stouffer's frozen entrees, sitting in a less-than-comfy chair and watching a steady diet of Julia Roberts and Robin Williams movies. But the severity of conditions proved too much for the adventurer on just the first leg, a New York-to-London flight. WANNA SEE MY BIG BEN? ZZZ He found no edible component of the meal served, and was forced to ration out a small packet of salted peanuts. With peanut rations low and tensions high, his 'rowmates' simultaneous moves to the seat pocket and lavatory pushed him to the edge. So, only 15% into his journey, Prescott had to ditch the mission and force an emergency landing in Iceland. He was rushed to the airport's first-class lounge, where he was given supplies from the duty free shop while he recovered from the ordeal. Rob: Oh, the humanity! More Toblerone! More Moet! But this setback has not deterred the daredevil from future missions. He's now in training for a climb to the top of the Trump tower -- in the SERVICE elevator. Rob: Even if there are stinky workers or delivery men in it!
