Noooooo, Say It Ain't So!: Skymall Files For Bankruptcy

January 23, 2015


In heartbreaking news for anybody who's ever needed to find a place to hide a booger without the passengers next to them noticing, infamous purveyor of shit/crapola Skymall has announced it's filing for bankruptcy. Apparently people discovered you can shop on the internet. I know, I'm as shocked as you are.

"With the increased use of electronic devices on planes, fewer people browsed the SkyMall in-flight catalog," [Chief Executive Scott] Wiley said.

The increase in the number of airlines providing Internet access "resulted in additional competition from e-commerce retailers and additional competition for the attention of passengers, all of which further negatively impacted SkyMall's catalog sales," he added.

Ahahahhahaha, I was right. I mean, of course I was right, it's just a weird feeling. Why order from Skymall when you can order from Amazon and actually buy something you're going to use? Now I'm no air marshal, but I do carry a fake plastic badge and flash it at the stewardess while I demand free drinks. Shortly after I usually get to meet the real air marshal.

Thanks to Michael K, who was hit so hard by the news he took the rest of the day off.

    Scott you have a wonderful last name. It's odd when you feel like something will be missed and it is a magazine that sold useless garbage. But I probably will for a time, in a nonessential way.

    RIP football helmet shaped automatic dog food feeder that also holds my toothbrushes and shined my shoes. The world will never know such convenience again.

    Ever looked at the prices in the Skymall mag? Bitches were outrageously out of hand. You could sell a baby for less then it was to get a damn towel warmer from that thing. But uhhh you know that's just an assumption, I've never tried to buy/sell a baby on the black market. *shifty eyes* What you lookin' at bro!

    When you don't change with the times what else do you expect?

    They do actually have a website, but I would wager their financial troubles are more to do with their ridiculous prices on cheap shit.
