Don't shed a tear for the airlines.

I got this letter in my e-mail box today. Marcus and Laurie forwarded it to me this morning with a warning that it contained the sort of childish, sexist humour we've come to expect from the internet.

I don't want to offend anybody, but I thought it was safer posted here by me, with a disclaimer, rather than have some sensitive soul stumbling across it and breaking out in a hissy-fit. So if you're an oversensitive, feminist, Muslim, or airline employee, read no further.

Oh, don't look at the picture, either.

To Whom It May Concern:

Re: A plan to save bankrupt airlines

Replace all female flight attendants with some good-lookin' strippers! What the heck? The attendants have gotten old and haggard-looking. They don't even serve food anymore, so what's the loss?

The strippers would double, triple, perhaps quadruple the alcohol consumption and get a "party atmosphere" going in the cabin. And, of course, every heterosexual businessman in this country would start flying again, hoping to see naked women.

Muslims would be afraid to get on the planes for fear of seeing naked women. Hijackings would come to a screeching halt and the airline industry would see record revenues.

Why the heck didn't Bush think of this?

Why do I still have to do everything myself?
