Southwest Flight Attendant's Gut-Busting Comedy Routine Goes Viral: WATCH

Originally posted 04/15/2014 12:00PM

Fasten your seat belts, put your tray table in an upright position, and don't forget to tip your waitress.

One Southwest Airlines flight attendant had her passengers rolling in the aisles recently with her irreverent take on the traditional in-flight safety demonstration.

"Position your seat belt tight and low across your hips, like my grandmother wears her support bra," Marty Cobb began. The routine only got better from there, as Cobb cracked jokes about annoying babies, airplane life jackets and the chances of the cabin experiencing a loss of pressure. As they say, comedy should be relatable.

She finished up with a spin on the customary invitation: "If there's anything at all we can do to make your flight more enjoyable, please tell us ... just as soon as we land in Salt Lake City. And if there's anything you can do to make our flight more enjoyable, we'll tell you immediately. We're not shy in Southwest."
