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.

Iran Aseman

Approximate Vintage: 2010
Received From: Rainer Schwartz
Print or Image Color: Light Blue
Background / Bag Color: White, Light Blue
Very lightly colored and graded. A flying bird on the front and a bunch of Arabic (or Farsi?) in the fold completes the bag.

Iraqi Airways

Approximate Vintage: 1982

Nice coloration, nice bag.

Nice coloration, nice bag. The airplane has curved wings.

Nice to see that even a war doesn't interrupt the barf bag innovations.

Irish Ferries

Received From: Ken Costilow
Print or Image Color: 2 Shades of Blue + Green
Background / Bag Color: White
The nifty shamrock makes this bag kind of cool.

German Physicist, Michael Sternberg, who specializes in covalent solids, comments 'When I saw this, I was ROTFL -- "Selbstbedienung" is German for "self service", and usually connotes a shop or cafeteria - I wouldn't want to know what goodies are wrapped so nicely.'

This bag is identical to the other Irish Ferries bag, except it is MUCH LARGER. Perhaps they started serving food on the Ferry.

Israir

Approximate Vintage: 2001
Received From: Sam Green
Print or Image Color: White
Background / Bag Color: Peach
You really have to strain to see the difference between the front and the back of this bag, but there it is, printed in the lightest of halftones, "REFUSE BAG" on one side and its Hebrew equivalent on the other.

Israir

Approximate Vintage: 2007
Received From: Janusz Tichoniuk
Print or Image Color: Orange, White
Background / Bag Color: Navy
Israir actually writes you a personal letter on its bag. "Dear Guest, We are doing our best to make this flight as comfortable as possible. Please help us by keeping your environment clean. Thee cabin crew will pass by your seat every now and then to collect the refuse bag and some other items. Thank you for your cooperatino and have a pleasant flight."

Istanbul Airlines

Approximate Vintage: 1997
Received From: Anonymous
Print or Image Color: Blue with Red Tulip
Background / Bag Color: White
Odd design quirk. The front is identical to the back, except for a horizontal thin white line. Why did they do this?

It's Ilya's Fault

Received From: Mark Dominus
Print or Image Color: Black
Background / Bag Color: White and Tan
This bag is part of the "Regular Expression" collection put out by Mark Dominus for his Perl class.

Itapemirim

Received From: Christian Annyas
Print or Image Color: Black, Red, Yellow
Background / Bag Color: White Plastic
This bag is kind of an imposter. I think it's more of a trash bag than a barf bag, but it could certainly be used for either. The Brazilian Bus company that uses this probably has it for double duty, so I'm placing it in the museum. I don't read Portuguese, but I don't see any words refering to vomit, so I'm skeptical.

Skepticism confirmed by puke enthusiast Rodrigo Maroni. The outspoken Brazilian says, "The Itapemirim bag is actually not supposed to act as a vomit bag. It's a trash plastic bag and teh yellow words say 'To make your trip more pleasant, put your trash in here'"

ITI

Approximate Vintage: 2006
Received From: Thorsten Hecht
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
I have no idea what this bag is all about because I don't understand Italian. I do know that ITI does not fly anywhere, so I'm not sure why they have barf bags.

Jackass (2nd German variation)

Approximate Vintage: 2003
Received From: Stefanie Caspary
Print or Image Color: Black
Background / Bag Color: White
The 2nd German version of the celebrated stupid movie, Jackass. Alex Kowatsch of Hamburg translates as follows:

Front: The Jackass Barf Bag

Back: What am I gonna do with a Jackass Barf Bag?

[First Picture] First, have a seat in your chair. Make sure your backrest is in an upright position, and that it's even there anymore. Then, shut up as the greatest movie of all times is about to begin. Silence anyone who is laughing already!

[Second Picture] Huh? You didn't imagine the movie to be this primitive, repulsive and disgusting? Maybe you thought this would be one of those trashy chick-flicks or a hardcore action movie for crazy gearheads? We're sorry that you feel sick now. But maybe it's the rotten popcorn or your neighbors bad breath.

[Third Picture] What a mess! (Literal translation would be 'There we have the salad!') Or did you eat anything else before this? Anyways, now you know why you had to take a Jackass Barf Bag with you to the movies. This movie just isn't for sensible people with weak stomachs. But hey, at least the bag can hold a lot of stuff.

Jackass (Bob Duff UK DVD release)

Approximate Vintage: 2003
Received From: Robert Large
Print or Image Color: Black
Background / Bag Color: White
This bag is fresh off the press, and as you can see from the bag's bottom, it's "Produced with pride by Bob Duff". Apparently, the DVD release of Jackass necessitated yet another sickbag. This one says, "You'll laugh. You'll hurl. You'll laugh again." Another winning bag.

Jackass (David Walker UK DVD release)

Approximate Vintage: 2003
Received From: Nathan Bell
Print or Image Color: Black
Background / Bag Color: White
Unlike the other Jackass UK bag, this on is "Produced with pride by David Walker". Apparently, the DVD release of Jackass necessitated yet another sickbag. This one says, "You'll laugh. You'll hurl. You'll laugh again." Another winning bag.

Jackass (German release - Die Jackass Kotztüte)

Approximate Vintage: 2002
Received From: Oliver Hartmann
Print or Image Color: Black
Background / Bag Color: White
The German version of the celebrated stupid movie, Jackass. Can someone translate the ostensibly humorous content on the back of this bag? I hope it's worth the time to figure out what it says -- the pictographs are funny, maybe the copy is too.

As always, a generous air sickness bag afficionado comes along. Alex Kowatsch of Hamburg translates as follows:

Front: The Jackass Barf Bag

Back: What am I gonna do with a Jackass Barf Bag?

Jackass (USA release)

Approximate Vintage: 2002

Excellent bag that sports a skull and crossbones and was part of the movie's promo kit. The bag warns, "WARNING: The stunts in this movie were perfomred by professionals, so neither you nor your dumb buddies should attempt anything from this movie." Much different than the UK version of this bag.

Jadrolinija Rijeka Hrvatska

Received From: Ralph Riffenburgh
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
You can tell this is an old bag because this ferry line is Croatian ... no longer from "Jugoslavija" as the bag tells you. The bag is huge, so maybe they used to serve an unlimited buffet.

Japan Air Lines

Received From: Robert Masumura
Print or Image Color: Dark Blue
Background / Bag Color: Light Blue
Identical to this bag, except a blue tab is used instead of a tear strip. There is also text on the bottom of this bag exhorting one to use this bag for trash.
