Chilling Bin Laden?

Yeah WTF?

Can you explain why this was on a drawer in a MAS aircraft?

Is it appropriate?

Is it a joke?

Let me know what you think.

    Ah! I knew terrorism would come to Malaysia some day.

    Btw, was this in one of those evully rude cabin crews’ drawer? Or was it for the innocent customers?

    if I were part of the crew, it would be partly funny. if I were a passenger (which I was) no it’s not funny. if I were an American passenger, call in the FBI please

    puns are great

  5. ShaolinTiger September 27, 2005 at 11:43 pm #

    It was in the crew gallery area, where they prepare the drinks and stuff.

    You saw that and didn’t proceed to open the contraption to see if Bin Laden was sitting in there with a margarita in his hand, chilling to some techno airport music?

    Start panicking!!

  8. Victor September 28, 2005 at 12:04 am #

    I would have drawn a few more cartoons on it. Maybe sketches of Bin Laden, the funny version.

  9. S-Kay September 28, 2005 at 12:21 am #

    LOL…seriously, there are alot more things you can find there especially after long hour flights

  10. spiller September 28, 2005 at 12:34 am #

    Probably he’s in the cockpit yo!

    But it’s not gonna be Margarita, but sirap limau ais instead 😉

  11. spiller September 28, 2005 at 12:37 am #

    Ya.. we could actually sue the airline for traumatising passenger onboard, ya know? Too bad it was MAS, where everyone will take it as a joke only.

  12. james September 28, 2005 at 1:59 am #

    So… MAS is into cryogenics now, eh?

  13. Jon September 28, 2005 at 2:05 am #

    I’ll agree with suanie… it was probably a joke.

  14. j o e l September 28, 2005 at 2:05 am #

    I believe that it means that the ‘chilling bin (container for chilling)’ has already been laden/filled.

  15. emily September 28, 2005 at 2:09 am #

    haha… joe makes sense!!
    it’s logical…. chilling bin laden…. haha, and you found it in the “drink making area too” !!

  16. ShaolinTiger September 28, 2005 at 2:17 am #

    Yeah that’s what I thought too, I got the same answer when I thought about it logically.

    Bad choice of words though?

    Could have put “Cooling Drawer Full” or something..

  17. Avi September 28, 2005 at 2:19 am #

    It could be a new dish like Eggs Benedict (named after Benedict Arnold) or Pizza Margarita (Itallian Queen Margarita). I am guessing this is a desert.

  18. Anonymous September 28, 2005 at 2:40 am #

    Its a joke

  19. y5o September 28, 2005 at 2:53 am #

    i didnt find it funny but i understand that its a joke. anyone who thinks otherwise is retarded.

  20. SaDdNesZ.jc September 28, 2005 at 3:16 am #

    Luckily no one hijacked the thing an attempted to bring it to the CIA…

  21. FireAngel September 28, 2005 at 3:19 am #

    Can be insider joke.

    Chilling (ca)Bin Laden (with food)?

    Maybe not funny to Americans.

  22. Anonymous September 28, 2005 at 5:11 am #

    obviously someone thought it was. but you know what if i was in a plane and i saw that i won’t leave, i’ll stick around to see what would happen.

  23. Dabido (Teflon) September 28, 2005 at 5:44 am #

    You might be too young to remember, but there was this thing called ‘The Malay Crisis’ way back in 1958 when Communists tried to get into Malaysia and turn it into a communist state.
    When I was there in 1969-1972, there were still some Communists running around. Some were terrorists … but, was a long time ago.
    I was told not to go near ‘red flags’. Some school kids were blown up when I was there – they went near some red flags, which were apparently in a minefield. Made the front page when I was in Penang.

  24. Dabido (Teflon) September 28, 2005 at 5:58 am #

    Maybe Osama was actually on the flight and they were chillin his stuff for him.

  25. tigerjoe September 28, 2005 at 6:08 am #

    That’s the insulated storage used to keep whatever needs to be kept chilled, i.e. a chilling bin. It was probably full when you took the pic, hence the annotation “laden”.

    It’s either that, or someone’s trying to travel without being seen. 😛

  26. Kerfy September 28, 2005 at 7:50 am #

    How do you walk by something like that without taking a peek?

    I deplore your lack of “itchy fingers”.

  27. senbai September 28, 2005 at 8:36 am #

    it’s the description for the box….it’s a bin laden (full of) with chilled stuff

  28. dreamer idior September 28, 2005 at 10:58 am #

    hopefully it was not meant as a joke among the crew, because even if it was, it isn’t funny, in fact disturbing – a reflection of the mindset of particiular crew members…

    On the other hand. there are pp with family surname bin laden, read abt a restaurant with a bin laden name at the height of post 9/11

  29. GhOsT September 28, 2005 at 11:03 am #

    It looks like the original words were chill bin, the rest seems to be added on later……. hmm??

  30. Auntie Ning Ku September 28, 2005 at 1:01 pm #

    Oh dear , don’t play a prank like dat,…. you might get deported to dreary rainy UK.

    You know how sensitive the east coast is. Osama is their friend and they want to sama-sama turn the world into an Islamic state and kill all the infidels whatever that means. You better grow a goatee, put on a long robe and lots of blaack kohl on your eyes to blend in. Don’t forget to get an extreme tan as well. Since you’ve been here sooo long the sun seems to have lost its allure. Estee Lauder does an instant tan cream but not available in Msia – ask your mum to send it to you by DHS right now. Its a state of emergency and don’t forget to carry some prayer beads with you at all times.

    If all fails, say you’re from Bosnia … Muslim Bosnia that is. They might want some proof of circumsicion, get a chop off the knob. Well if thats too painful, ring the religious police and get yourself caught in your room. More pleasure than pain. At least its worth it, you might get citizen-zip for life. I do feel for you…

  31. Auntie Ning Ku September 28, 2005 at 2:06 pm #

    While I was stir frying…. I’ve dreamt a name of disguise for you – Instead of Shaolin Tiger whatabout “Syaiful Gila” It rhymes well… dont’ you think .. Have to go back slaving on the stove or my hungry husband will beat the shit outta me. These days domestic abuse is not confine to the bed …

  32. att September 28, 2005 at 7:36 pm #

    Auntie Ning Ku.. he abuse you, or you abuse him in bed? We want to know! Were whips and handcuffs (or silky underthings, you sly housewife you!) involved?! *pant*

  33. ShaolinTiger September 28, 2005 at 9:42 pm #

    Don’t you mean Syaitan?

  34. Auntie Ning Ku September 29, 2005 at 4:00 am #

    Ooops I mean “Syaiful Tiga” like the Three Musketeers … i dun mean to say you’re loony, many apologise.

    Domestic Abuse in bed – ah you know that demanding morning broomstick poke and hit…. Just so annoying !! Can’t get some peaceful sleep. Oh I’m not into those S&M thing … those are reserve for perverts and ppl who wants to waste money on black rubber. I’m very old fashion one. Just put on grubby kitchen apron with nothing on = cheap and definately cheers my husband up!!! think of all the money I’m saving ….

  35. vlad September 29, 2005 at 5:22 am #

    It is quite clear that Osama bin Drinking.

  36. Jon September 29, 2005 at 9:00 am #

    I think there might be a high probability that the author was talking about this South Korean ice sculpture
