Dave: Up, up and away!

The hostility between the federal government and Superman came to a head in late 2005 when the FAA began requiring the superhero to file flight plans, respect no-fly zones, and maintain tower contact at all times when aloft.  "As they say," FAA chairman Lloyd Gusward says, "He's 'a plane.'  That puts him under our jurisdiction."

Fortunately for truth, justice, and the American Way, lawyers were able to use Chairman Gusward's words against him, noting that if Superman were "a plane," he was also "a bird," and so (as the last survivor of Krypton) fell under the protection of the Endangered Species Act.

I know what truth and justice are, but what's an American Way?

Never mind. I heard it averaged about 170 pounds.
