Parents forget child at airport
A flight attendant escorted the girl on her eventual flight to Paris
Staff at Ben Gurion Airport in Israel have found a four-year-old girl alone in a duty-free shop after her parents accidentally took a plane without her.
The mother and father were sitting in different parts of the aircraft and did not realise their mistake until the captain informed them after take-off. The girl was put on the next flight to Paris. The parents will be questioned when they return to Israel. It looks like if they had a slight lack of communication ! I only forget my keys and glasses.
Arab arrested because he has two wives too much
Saudi arabian police has arrested a 56 years old man, accused to have 6 wives instead of the legally allowed 4. The man rejected this accusation saying that he had divorced from two of them. A special commision has been created to investigate this case. I wonder from which of the above women he divorced ? I think it must be the right and left one, they are the most ugliest.
Fat people to pay more
A BUDGET airline might charge fat passengers more for travelling on their planes in the wake of soaring fuel prices. AirAsia X is believed to be considering WEIGHING passengers to calculate the overall weight of the aircraft. If installed, the system would allow the airline to calculate the remaining weight allowance to be taken up with cargo. That's not fair ! Usually you get a rebate on quantity !
A dead wicked way to go
WHAT a wicked way to go! This new range of colourful
coffins could finally put the fun into funerals.
The carton board caskets can be adorned with any “customer’s” favourite image — ranging from wine bottles to flags, flowers, and a replica golf ball container.
The boxes, from Guernsey-based Creative Coffins, cost from £295 to £1,200.
People may be dying to try them.
Royals get an eco bee in their bonnet
A MAN dressed as a giant bee today warned the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall that the world could be facing an “ecological disaster”.
Beekeeper Barry Walker-Moore, 62, told Charles and Camilla of the threat disease is posing to bee populations and asked them to back a campaign for more research. Isn't he cute ? But it would have been much nicer if he had disguised himself as a flower !
A BEMUSED Queen stares down a railway track – as the Royal Train runs ten minutes late.
But while the situation may be familiar to most of us, this was the first time Her Majesty had been forced to wait around on a platform.
And with nowhere to go for a quick cup of tea, it meant the Queen, Prince Philip and other VIPs had to wait patiently under a shelter on their way home from the 150th Great Yorkshire Show.
So it also happens to Her Majesty ! This will comfort myself and all train taking passengers next time the train is late !
