Tragedy On The High Seas Makes CNN And Carnival Look Like Extreme Sissies
Published on November 15, 2010
These things would be a hellish ordeal even if everything was working, wouldn't they? There should probably be a news story every time one embarks...
You did not even mention the elevators not working! Or hair dryers! After such an ordeal, most of those people will never pseudo-travel again. Yet, you laugh?
See, CNN didn't even mention that they were giving away free booze. The most trusted name in news just missed the most important fact of the whole ordeal. I can sort-of agree with the incident being described as an ordeal, as long as that modifier is used to describe the hang-overs those seasick passengers must have felt.
Considering I read that they were giving out free booze, it seems like, if the passengers has been even a little creative, the CNN Headline should have read, "Cruise Ship Passengers Have the Most Epic Game of Drunk Hide and Go Seek in History."
