OK, Bag Monster is a moronic name, but Monster has become a catch-all phrase for "Hey, this will help you do something" This section will help you find the bags you're looking for (like you're really looking for them). Leaving everything blank will retrieve a list of all bags, however that may cause the page to load slowly.

Delta Air Lines

Approximate Vintage: 2014
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
A few years later, LK industries (?) decides that it needs to promote the fact that it's a registered trademark, even though it holds the same patent as before.

Delta Air Lines

Approximate Vintage: 2016
Print or Image Color: Navy
Background / Bag Color: White Plastic
Delta decides to re-brand itself as baby friendly by making the barf bag a "Baby Care" bag. It says:
  • Changing tables in lavatories
  • Never flush diapers or bag
  • Place diaper in bag and deposit in waste container


Fortunately, it's still for barfing as it says the following on the back: FEEL BETTER
  • Never flush bags
  • Use for motion sickness
  • Deposit bag in waste container

Denver Botanic Gardens Corpse Flower

Approximate Vintage: 2015
Received From: Jeanne Posthumus
Print or Image Color: Red
Background / Bag Color: White
This bag was created by the Denver Botanic Gardens to celebrate the blooming of its "Corpse Flower", which is supposed to smell so bad that it makes you sick. You can read about it here.

The bag features a drawing of the flower and says, "Weird Exotic Pungent"

THE AMORPHOPHALLUS TITANIUM CORPSE FLOWER DENVER BOTANIC GARDENS FIRST BLOOM 2015"

Denver Museum of Nature & Science

Approximate Vintage: 2005
Received From: Jennifer Navarrete
Background / Bag Color: Green
An excellent bag released by the Denver Museum of Nature & Science. This bag was used to mail out press releases for their exhibit called "Grossology", which runs from Oct. 7, 2005 - January 1, 2006. They have a great catchphrase: "Something's Coming Up at the Museum!", along with a baby barfing.

Serendipity brought this bag. I was interviewed about the barf bags on Denver's 99.5-FM The Mountain. Fortunately, they had just received this press release, so they offered me the bag. Hats off to them.

Deutsche BA

Approximate Vintage: 1995
Received From: Dr. Walter Brinker
Print or Image Color: White, Red, Orange
Background / Bag Color: Navy
This bag reminds you 390 times that this is indeed a wastebag.

Deutsche BA

Approximate Vintage: 2000
Received From: Thomas Homer Goetz
Print or Image Color: Black and White
Background / Bag Color: Orange and White
Nice color scheme -- if it's Halloween. Perfect bag for Trick or Treating.

Deutsche BA

Approximate Vintage: 2001

Can you say Orange? I knew that you could.

Deutsche Seereederei

Received From: Janusz Tichoniuk
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: Tan
Old Sea Sickness Bag. I don't really know if it's from Deutsche Seereederei as stated (whatever that is) but it's still a cool bag.

DFDS Seaways

Approximate Vintage: 2002
Received From: Thomas Bernhardt
Print or Image Color: White
Background / Bag Color: Navy
An unbelievably beautiful and detailed bag. You actually get the feeling you're on a cruise by looking at the bag. Scandinavians have cornered the market on beautiful design. The attention to detail in the ship's reflection shows how much loving care went into the bag, not to mention how they coddle the passenger by telling them that even the toughest sailors get sick. This bag is almost identical to its Scandinavian Seaways (A DFDS Company) predecessor. An interesting thing to note is that they misspell 'fatigue' as 'fatique'.

Dinar

Received From: Denir Camargo
Print or Image Color: Blue and Green
Background / Bag Color: White
What a cruel joke to the sick passenger. The airline's name is Dinar -- or is Dinar the contents of the bag? Interesting Flying Toilet Seat logo. Oddly enough, the Dinar's donor's name is Denir.

Direcção de Exploração de Transportes Aéreos (DETA / LAM)

Received From: Andrew Angel
Print or Image Color: Blue, Red
Background / Bag Color: White Plastic
Direcção de Exploração de Transportes Aéreos is the forerunner of the modern airline LAM from Mozambique. The instructional artwork looks like it comes from TAP Air Portugal, which dovetails nicely with the fact that Mozambique was once colonized by Portugal.

Dirty Sanchez

Approximate Vintage: 2007
Received From: Cesar Bautista
Print or Image Color: Red, Black
Background / Bag Color: White
Pretty much, this bag assumes you know what a Dirty Sanchez is. Hint: It's tangentially related to a Hot Carl. Your next stop is Wikipedia.

Anyway, these bags were distributed at a movie convention in Las Vegas in July 2007 to promote the opening of this movie.

Disneyland Star Tours

Approximate Vintage: 1986
Print or Image Color: Blue and Orange
Background / Bag Color: Gray
Unbelievable! Disneyland, perpetually santitized for your protection, actually issued a barf bag. This is for a ride called "Star Tours". The bag was discontinued when Disney felt that the bag no longer sent the proper corporate message. I almost listed this under Space Sickness Bags, since it says right on the bag to use in case of Space Sickness.

Dniproavia

Approximate Vintage: 2011
Received From: Vidas Vekerotas
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
I love a bag that has no English on it. This Ukranian carrier had only 3 small planes in its fleet before being taken over by AeroSvit in 2012. I like the "Band-Aid" texture of the blue stripe on the bag.

Do You Want

Received From: Christian Annyas
Print or Image Color: Purple and Gray
Background / Bag Color: White
Besides having a really nice layout, this bag poses the open-ended question, "do you want...". What could this mean? Here are just a few of the possbilitites (or suggest your own):
    do you want...
  • fries with that?
  • to dance under the moonlight?
  • to die?
  • to quit smoking?
  • this stupid list to end?

Professional Bagster, Paul Van de Keere, who is actually an employee of De Ster Belgium chimes in with the definitive answer saying it 'is a neutral airsicknessbag of the articles sold by the firm "De Ster", travel division of Duni Sweden'. In any event, Paul never did reveal what the enigmatic words, 'Do you want?' are suppposed to mean.

Doci

Approximate Vintage: 2002

Unremarkable bag, despite KLM-ish logo. However if you examine the back side of the bag, they thank English speakers for throwing up, but not Spanish speakers.

Doctor Butcher

Received From: Scott Cunningham
Print or Image Color: Black
Background / Bag Color: White
This is a rare find I purchased on eBay. It seems that in the mid-90s, a movie theater in Lodi, OH printed up special bags for several horror flicks under the umbrella name of Midnight Cinema

This bag says
WARNING MAY INDUCE VOMITING...
DOCTOR BUTCHER M.D.
MEDICAL DEVIATE
He is a depraved, sadistic rapist; A bloodthirsty, homicidal killer.
... and He Makes House Calls!

One interesting note about this bag is that they printed the copy on the same generic bag that Southwest uses. On the bottom, it says "U.S. Patent No. 7,041,042 and features LK Plastics logo, without the words "LK Plastics".

Dodekanisos Seaways

Received From: Gerhard Lang
Print or Image Color: Navy
Background / Bag Color: White
Much like Aegean Airlines, there is a connect the dots to keep you busy while you're sick. However, notice about a third of the way down on the right side, there are two different dots numbered 16. Also, they inexplicably print the answer of the finished product, which is not surprisingly the logo.
