Broken: Ad on barf bag

Jarrod Hepburn writes:

I'm sending a picture of a motion sickness bag I got on a Qantas flight from Sydney to Melbourne last year. The bag has a special offer for Kodak photo developing on it: "Please take this bag with you and pass on to family or friends if you are unable to use". I was feeling quite well on the flight, so I dutifully took the bag with me since I was unable to use it. It's still unused.


That doesn't seem too broken to me. Ads function to pass memorable messages. If it's being trapsed around and posted on web sites, looks like it was a pretty succesful ad. Weird, but functional.

Think of all the potential this bag has for practical jokes though...

Is the bag supposed to double as an envelope to send in rolls of film too? If so, will the film developer still accept the bag if it's been previously used for its alternate purpose?

I saw the same bag last year, and though of vomiting in the bag and sending it to Kodak. It doubles as the actual envelope to send your film in. I quipped to my wife that I would definitely NOT check doubles for that order.

Look at the lower left portion of the photo. Does it strike a resemblance?

I wonder what Kodak would do if you sent in vomit. They might return it to you on fire on your front porch.

Chain barf-bags are the new chain e-mail.
