The idea for the most recent t-shirt design from WackSack.com came from our friends up North trying to do the right thing and the media of course taking it hilariously wrong.
It seems that after complaints of two passengers, the Canadian Transportation Agency has order Air Canada to come up with a plan to accomodate those with severe peanut allergies. It seems two people who complained to the CTA got action after not getting anywhere with Air Canada. The CTA ruled, “people with peanut and nut allergies face significant barriers to safe travel and should be treated as having a disability. As such, all accommodations should be made to ensure their safety while travelling with Air Canada.”
The funniest part is if you clicked the link to the story on a USA Today Blog not only is the title hilarious – Air Canada ordered to give fliers a ‘nut-free’ flight option – but take a look at the accompanying picture. Really? The best image to go with this story is a picture of an inflated hotdog??
So we give you the lastest No Nuts design available on t-shirts, buttons, bags, etc. Some useful ideas for who you might buy this for include:
- Your favorite peanut allergy sufferer. Why should they have to explain their allergies to everyone. Let a shirt speak for itself.
- Your favorite man in your life. Make sure he wears this out in public with you so everyone knows who wears the pants in the relationship.
- Your favorite lesbian. What better way to tell a guy to f_ off in a humorous way by letting him know you aren’t interested.
Personally, I think if they want to create a “nut free” zone in the airplanes, I would be happy to seat passengers accordingly since I can point out the real nuts. They tend to get seated next to me and want to share their entire life story with me when all I want to do is sleep. Oh and I have a great idea for Air Canada to easily adhere to this new policy. STOP SERVING PEANUTS. Give out pretzels instead.
I’d get one for my sister. She’s allergic to peanuts. (And also doesn’t like pretzels.)
Well in the US on delta they also have the Biscoff(sp?) cookies.
I would get one for my son when he goes to his group therapy session j/k
Another target audience.
When I flew to Singapore with Singapore Airlines the flight attendants saw me opening a sachet of cashews I’d bought before boarding. I was asked oh so politely if I would mind sealing them back up and refrain from eating them on board as another passenger may have a nut allergy.
Seemed like a reasonable request to me so I was happy to oblige.
I thought most nut allergies were from peanuts. Wonder what percent suffer from general nut allergies.
I don’t know bearman. Perhaps they were just being very very sure?
I have a friend that her girls have allergies to tree nuts.
Thanks…a list of the types of nut allergies.
How many people have died in flight from peanut allergy triggered by the edibles offered? I have no idea but I bet there have been one or two in 70 years, tops. How many flights have been diverted to get emergency treatment for allergic passengers? Similar.
How many people have died in flight due to terrorist action? Get the fecking priorities right FFS
(Sorry bearman, get a bit ranted there)
Death by nuts is just another good example of natural selection 🙂
This is much ado about nothing. As I said they don’t need to set up nut free zones. No one is demanding that peanuts be served on airplanes. Just serve something else.
But not booze to the pilots!
good lord, don’t stop serving the booze. it’s the only way i can get through the flight. it’s my xanax…on another note, have you ever noticed that airports for some reason make the best damn bloody marys?? why is that?
Yeecchhhh. Bloody Marys
*GASP!!* Oh no you di’nt!! 😯
OH LORD HERE COMES ANOTHER NEW CARTOON!!!!!!!!!!!LOL!
Oh lord indeed.
Thank god this post wasn’t about condoms…whoops f**k I promised I wasn’t gonna mention…ah never mind. Blahahahaha now I am confused , where the hell am I suppose to sit ?
What the heck are you nodding off for, Bearman – I was just about to tell you my entire life story! 🙂
OK…let me wake up so you can put me back to sleep yourself..haha j/k
How can you ask that Loon? IN THE NUT SECTION!! hmm…can you say copyright infringement?
They should make all the no nutters sit in the aisle seats right at the back, near the toilets in the chairs that can’t recline 🙂
DO NOT FORGET THE NO NUTS INSIDE THE PLANE JUST ON THE WINGS SOMEONE MIGHT GET SICK!
Funny tee. At least you have the nuts to put it out there.
Did you click on the link and see the picture they used to accompany the article. Someone had more nuts than me.
Wow! I have a couple of Eunuch friends who’d love that t-shirt.
If you would have one eunuch friend, I would have been impressed but a couple?? Now I think you are making it up.
c’mon… I have a fake name, can’t I make up sensational stuff?
Actually I have no eunuch friends, that I’m aware of but I did just read a detective/mystery book featuring a Eunuch detective…does that count?
I like the idea. Not only for things you are alergic to but even for things you don’t like. I’m going to try to find one for turnip greens.
Does anyone like those??
JUST THOSE SOUTHERN BOYS LIKE BILLY BOB!
Just ’cause you are Southern don’t mean you have to eat weeds.
i want a ‘frigginloonbears unite’ shirt
That could be a lot of fur flying 🙂
could there be a fight a brewin’? i’d better stick around just in case.
Why does Friggin Loon get top billing??
correction: trippin’ frigginloonbears…now, that’s better!
How about I can’t bear those frigginloony trippers.
i bow to your brilliance but just this once!
How’s about frigginloonbearsall balahahahahaahah
NO. NO, NO, JUST CONDOMS!
This certainly gives you an excuse to offer your peanuts to the girl next to you.
“Excuse me, would you like my nuts?”
“My peanuts, would you like my peanuts?”
She looks at your shirt.
“OH! Your nuts! Umm…. no thanks. I’m a lesbian.”
(This happens to me all the time).
haha. Too funny.
So, females only, unless they’re related to, or actually are, the Coulters, the Bachmanns or any other family group where the female members are said to have huevos, or are just plain nuts. I’d seriously think of cutting mine off the fly with totally sane females. Then again, thinking doesn’t hurt much 🙂
” I’d seriously think of cutting mine off the fly with totally sane females” Would you care to rephrase that? Ididn’t get it.
As opposed to keepin’ em and flying with insane women? What’s to rephrase?
OHHH…cut them of TO fly with totally sane. Now I get it.
To . . . the . . .at my age, I’m glad I can still type.
I was too lazy to read the article. Was their policy before to force people with peanut allergies to eat peanuts on the plane? Or the people are claiming that looking at somebody else eating peanuts causes an allergic reaction? People.
Actually there are people who inhale the peanut dust and it sends them into allergic shock.
EEk, then yeah, go pretzel-style.
I think there is a whole story arc for you on this topic.
Peanuts – the biggest culprit of irritated flyers everywhere! I used to work at a steak house that you threw peanuts on the floor at. Talk about scaring off customers. They scattered light roaches when they saw them.
Was it Roadhouse???
Love the ‘favorite lesbian’ line. That was hilarious! XD Btw, today was the end of the Tarentino strips. I remembered you are a big fan of him, lol.
Sorry I haven’t been able to comment. Darn IE6 on my work laptop.
