PLEASE, SAY IT AIN’T SO: Skymall Files For Bankruptcy
In heartbreaking news for anybody who’s ever needed to find a place to hide a booger without the passengers next to them noticing, infamous purveyor of shit/crapola Skymall has announced it’s filing for bankruptcy. Apparently people discovered you can shop on the internet. I know, I’m as shocked as you are.
“With the increased use of electronic devices on planes, fewer people browsed the SkyMall in-flight catalog,” [Chief Executive Scott] Wiley said.
The increase in the number of airlines providing Internet access “resulted in additional competition from e-commerce retailers and additional competition for the attention of passengers, all of which further negatively impacted SkyMall’s catalog sales,” he added.
Ahahahhahaha, I was right. I mean, of course I was right, it’s just a weird feeling. Why order from Skymall when you can order from Amazon and actually buy something you’re going to use? Now I’m no air marshal, but I do carry a fake plastic badge and flash it at the stewardess while I’m asking for free drinks. Shortly after I usually get to meet the real air marshal.
Thanks to Michael K, who was hit so hard by the news he took the rest of the day off.
