    Is there a nice way to call these guys a pack of d**kheads....

    I don't know what the little stunt was even designed to prove. That people with unforunate names are allowed to travel by air? The surnames Kyder and Wrist are probably the least likely to cause any security issues.

    Yet another pathetic stunt by a group of wannabe comedians who should know better....

    Sorry guys, but this really made me laugh my **** off! :D :D Al Kyder and Terry Wrist. :mrgreen:

    I love the Chaser guys. Yes, it's often peurile but I find it so damned funny when they poke fun at authority. You have to admit that they are pretty ballsy. I wish I had been there to hear the announcement. Can't wait to see it tonight on the ABC.

    I don't see the harm and Chaser does , I find, tend to be amusing. I don't see that they did anything that causes an issue. No different to people going to the airport customer service desk at Gatwick and asking for a missing "friend" to be paged; just a more expensive way of doing it

    The Al Kyder skit is not the only funny one on Chaser that is related to airline security. Check out what they do with the plastic bag carry-on rules!

    You can watch the full show in ABC 2 (Digital tv) late tonight, or alternatively download the full show from the ABC website.

    I think one of the better episodes was with Rusty the horse and the purported "horsism" in our society :D

    Maybe they should have purchased a third ticket for Mr Joe King?

    I love this stuff ... it's relevant, topical and necessary. if it was not for guys like this then we would be living even more like those poor bastards in the LOTFAP.

    keep up the great work.

    as the quote goes ... 'people should not fear their government, a government should fear their people!'

    One of the mooted solutions to improve the time taken for security at Heathrow, and other airports, is to introduce profiling of passengers - and ultimately this will unfortunately mean that young Islamic looking (whatever the heck that means) males will be targetted.

    So can't wait to see the Chaser sketch at that time - a football team worth of men in beards fidgeting with their plastic carry on bags.
