Got an hour to waste? If so, visit the amazing DesignForChunks
site for the pinnacle of bag art. What
could barfbags be like if only airlines had a little imagination?
What if they hired an artist to design their bags, instead of some peon who cleans out ashtrays?
"puking in dull bags can no longer be accepted,
imagine your delight when you discover the receptacle you are about to
puke into is of the highest pedigree... how much happier you would be
handing over the steaming bag to the hostess..."
Even the site's "Dullair" bag is better than
three-quarters of the bags foisted on the unsuspecting public by callous
airlines. After seeing
these designs, you'll weep next time you reach into that seat pocket and
pull out a boring, grey Lufthansa
bag. Or even worse, a plain white American
Some of the designs are pretty funny, some are pretty
tasteless, some are sexist, and I must admit I don't understand the rest. Check the wording
on many of the bags -- too small to reproduce on these sample thumbnails,
but there are larger versions and lots more designs on the site itself. (9 Oct 2002)
