Talking about seeing signs, do any of you (who are old enough, I guess) remember that song “I saw the sign” from Ace of Base? There you go, now you have a stupid song in your head for the rest of the day! You’re welcome!
Here’s a shoutout to Julie, one of our biggest fans out there! If you’ve ever been to an air show, you probably have met her, if only unknowingly. But I think there’s no air show she doesn’t go to. Thanks for giving us the idea for this strip!
I am not particularly picky when it comes to food. And I don’t think airline food is usually that bad. I think the big problem is that, if they serve you something awful on a 8h flight, the only alternative to somehow force it down is to starve. So those experiences naturally traumatize you.
Having said all that, there are quite a few airline food related stories that I could tell, but nothing really spectacular. I’m sure you guys could top me. So, dear readers, what is your personal favorite airline food story?
We should send Chuck on one of those flirt seminars. But on the other hand, maybe not, because we’d be missing out on a lot of entertaining missed approaches!
For those of you who haven’t heard about this: The company “Eurocopter Group” has recently been renamed “Airbus Helicopters”, probably as a so called family brand strategy, a step which has been widely discussed in the helicopter world.
This re-branding has to be one of the most confusing ones I have ever seen. You take a name that perfectly signifies a gigantic airplane, a “bus in the air” so to speak, and you use it to sell small helicopters. Imagine how much they must have spent on new letterheads and signage?
I wouldn’t be surprised if the price of their helicopters just went up …
We were thinking of re-branding “Chicken Wings” as well. What do you guys think of “Strasser Entertainment” to more accurately reflect our “family brand”?
The Anaheim Heli Expo in Los Angeles is always one of the really good ones with a big turn-out (even though personally I’m kinda biased towards the Vegas show). And since Chuck doesn’t live far from there, it’s no surprise he NEVER misses this one!
Of course, it also isn’t a surprise that he gets lost in LA traffic and possibly gets sidetracked by Disneyland across the street.
This is actually the first show I am missing in 12 years due to other work commitments. I sure am sad that I won’t get to see all my buddies from all over the world. Some of you might know that I have held many functions there and was part of a lot of forums and meetings in my former job capacity. This year I will get to fly a giant orange helicopter around with a long line on instead. Things definitely could be way worse….
However “Chicken Wings” will still be there! Check out the “Vertical Daily Show News” and make sure to stop by the Vertical booth for great giveaways which also include Chicken Wings books!
Chuck sure knows how to make an entrance, doesn’t he! Thanks again Alasdair for the idea for this strip!
Aah … accounting! Did you just read that “aah” as a relaxed sigh, or more as a nervous scream? The answer might tell us something about yourself. Not if you like accounting or not (because, let’s be serious, who does?), but if you are a cynic and can laugh at even the nastiest things that life can throw at you. I know I sometimes laugh like a mad scientist when I do my taxes! Mwha. Mwhahahah! MUHAHAHAHA!
And it looks like he just bought some 30 year old second hand chains on Craigslist and they came in a 60 year old box. Well, a penny saved is a penny earned!
It looks like Chuck is two years behind with his pickup lines. Not that I think that particular line would have worked two years ago.
