Zack: Mandrills ripped my MILF!
Steve: Why are they so naked?
Zack: Most primates don't wear clothes, Steve.
Steve: Not the monkeys, the people. Why would they crash their plane and then take off their clothes?
Zack: Maybe they weren't wearing any when they got in the plane. Haven't you ever just thrown some sandals on your feet on a lazy Sunday and gone through a drive through to get a burger or something?
Steve: Not in an airplane.
Zack: And that's why you never get to hang out with busty babes and mandrills.
Steve: Pretty sure the picture is a cautionary tale on not doing that.
