Captain Skyteam Tip of the Day

So you're headed to sunny Florida for a trip, and conveniently, your first flight is late, causing you to miss you connection, and be stranded in not-at-all-sunny Cincinnati, OH in the middle of winter. To add insult to injury, the airline (not to mention any names, but they rhyme with "Bomb Bear") tells you that you'll have to stay in a hotel overnight and that you can't get your checked bags. "Graciously" they provide you with an overnight bag (which is basically a "Delta SkyTeam" t-shirt, and some overly-scented lotion). So, this becomes a two-part tip. First, if you cannot resist the urge to swim in the hotel's pool and hot tub, but don't have a bathing suit, you can easily claim that "you're European" and swim in your dark-colored boxer-briefs. Doesn't work as well with lighter-colored skivvies. But what you'll find out is that if you DO swim in your BVDs, you'll 1. have nothing to wear to bed (which is awkward when sharing a hotel room) and 2. you'll have no underoos to wear on your flight the next morning at 6:00 am. So, what we've found and tested is that you can "stick it to the man," and "stick it to your boys" by wearing your SkyTeam shirt as boxers! Put your legs through the arm holes and tie around your waist! And, you even have easy access for late night bathroom trips! What's most fun is you can prance around and in your best superhero voice declare, "I'm Captain SkyTeam!"

I think the picture seals the deal. It's disturbing enough to picture in one's mind, but to actually see it takes it to a whole other level...but props for being hilarious.

Note to self: Never, ever, no matter what the circumstances, borrow a shirt from Captain Skyteam.

Perhaps the photo is best left to the imagination...
