A pack of sex-starved turtles shut down a Kennedy Airport runway Wednesday by crossing the tarmac to get to their seasonal breeding grounds.

"JFK is experiencing delays as the airport clears turtles off the runway," JetBlue Airways wrote on its Twitter feed around 9:40 a.m., adding the hashtag "cantmakethisup."

Airport workers helped clear runway 4L of the slow-moving diamondback terrapins who were headed to their natural breeding grounds in Jamaica Bay.

JetBlue justified the delay by noting, "Running over turtles is not healthy for them, nor is it good for our tires."

This soooooo pissed me off.

Jagr's flight got delayed because of it.

Why in the hell couldn't they have just played some Barry White to speed things along?
