Only in Australia, can you make terrorist jokes in public with the taxpayers’ money and get away with it.
A late night comedy show on a public TV station called “The Chaser’s War on Everything” recently hosted a prank on a local domestic airline concerning the recent airline terrorism scares. They booked two e-tickets under the suspicious names of “Al Kyder” and “Terry Wrist” (which sounds surprisingly like Al Qaeda and Terrorist for those slow people) and checked-in to board. Of course, they wanted the names read out over the speakers so they failed to board the plane. The look on the women reading the names is priceless.
