Allegiant, easyJet Frontier, Interjet, Ryanair, Sun Country, Swoop, Viva Aerobus, Wizz Air and all the rest of the ultra low cost airlines out there all make their money by charging you for just about everything. In fact, wasn’t Ryanair considering charging to use the lavatory at one point?
Plenty of jokes have been made about low-cost airlines, even by their own employees. But I think this is the best one ever…
Fascinating Aïda is a singing group and satirical cabaret that’s been around for over 35 years. Their origins are in England and as you may know, the U.S. and U.K. sometimes have completely different words for some things (go ahead and click on the link – it’s very funny!), and similar-but-not-exactly-the-same words for others.
WARNING: The video below is an example of the latter. It has words that are decidedly minced oaths (the things you learn when writing a blog – I had never heard of the term either. It means, “a euphemistic expression formed by misspelling, mispronouncing, or replacing a part of a profane, blasphemous, or taboo term to reduce the original term’s objectionable characteristics.” So words and terms like gosh, poop and shut the front door! are all minced oaths. Learn something new every day, huh?), but they may be higher on the vulgarity scale in the U.K. than the U.S. (simply because we don’t use that particular word here very much).
