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.

Thai Airways

Approximate Vintage: 2011
Received From: Andrew Angel
Print or Image Color: Purple
Background / Bag Color: White, Purple
Similar to the previous version except now Thai is somehow "Smooth as silk", whatever that's supposed to mean.

Inside the fold of the bag it says ""Y.N.S. MARKETING CO. LTD. December 2011" which is a great reference for us collectors as the previous incantation was from May 2011. Why they changed it I can't say (people just liked it better that way?)

Thai Airways

Thai goes back to minimalism with this uninspired offering.

Thai Airways International

Approximate Vintage: 1969
Received From: Andrew Angel
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
Amazing old bag with a cloud and a basketball logo containing a two-armed Ganesha. I would be honored to throw up in this bag.

Thai Sky Airlines

Received From: Bruce Kelly
Print or Image Color: Purple
Background / Bag Color: White
Based on the cool logo, Thai Sky is the airline formerly known as Prince.

Thai Smile

Approximate Vintage: 2015
Received From: Mark Cheetham
Print or Image Color: Orange
Background / Bag Color: White
Even though this bag is ostensibly Thai, it has the British "Keep Calm and Smile" with a Get Well Soon and British Crown on it. According to Mark who generously donated the bag, 'There did not seem to be [bags] in every seat (just the "smile plus" or business seats).'

So I guess only rich passengers can stay tidy when they puke.

Thai Smile

Approximate Vintage: 2017
Received From: Frank Mulliri
Print or Image Color: Orange, Navy, Yellow
Background / Bag Color: White
Even though this bag is ostensibly Thai, it has the American Cartoon Network character 'Jake the Dog" on it. I'm not sure what strategic alliance between CN and Thai Smile is, but I do like the crossover. The bag also says 'Amazone', which I have no idea what it means.

The Blood Trilogy

Approximate Vintage: 2015
Print or Image Color: Red
Background / Bag Color: White
Cool bag that's an amalgamation of 3 prior gory movies, "Blood Feast", "Two Thousand Maniacs" and "Color Me Blood Red". The bag says the following:
50TH ANNIVERSARY VOMIT BAG!

BLOOD FEAST

The Boston T

Approximate Vintage: 1984
Print or Image Color: Red
Background / Bag Color: White
Back in 1984, a budding entrepreneur put out a package called "I hate the T" (Boston's subway system). This bag is just one of about 10 articles that came with the package.

The Boz

Approximate Vintage: 1990
Received From: Shirley Halverson
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White and Brown
I paid $10 for this. I actually met the Boz (Brian Bozworth) in 1988 when the Seahawks were on strike and he came into the gym to work out. I moved away from Seattle by the time this gem came out.

The Duke Makes Us Puke

Approximate Vintage: 1988
Print or Image Color: Red and Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
This bag is New Hampshire's contribution to the 1988 Republican National Convention in New Orleans. The Duke refers, of course, to Mike Dukakis (who I voted for by the way). Any guy who takes the T to work is OK with me. Side note: You don't often see the outline of the state of New Hampshire without some combination of Vermont and Maine.

The Eastern Bus

Received From: Christian Annyas
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
This bag is composed of mylar, which really distinguishes it as a quality product. If they have a bunch of extra bags they need to get rid of, they might be able to sell them to the Circle K convenience store chain. Sorry for the see-through, but I couldn't slip anything inside without breaking the red seal.

According to Chinese Translator, Y.L. Tan, The words around the top of the Circle-K logo say "Only the comforts of home, none of the hardships of travel".

The Interislander

Received From: Christoph Vogel
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
Nice font and planaria logo. No real closing mechanism though. Folding may help as suggested, but with no bottom and no way to close the bag, be careful!

The Interislander

Received From: Bruce Kelly
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
This front of this bag is identical to the former offering except it's printed landscape instead of portrait. Marketing wizards somehow convince Sea-Legs to purchase advertising on the back of the bag. Interestingly enough, Sea-Legs medication is produced by The Boots Company. "To boot" means to throw up of course.

The Night The Screaming Stopped

Received From: David Harris
Print or Image Color: White
Background / Bag Color: Red and White
I looked at the Internet Movie Database and can only find a reference to a movie called "The Day The Screaming Stopped", so this bag is a bit of a mystery to me. Perhaps you, fine reader can illuminate?

The Saturday Knights

Approximate Vintage: 2008
Received From: Kate Peterson
Print or Image Color: Gold, Blue
Background / Bag Color: Blue
This is obviously a generic Sic-Sac with a stamp on it, but the stamp is from the band "The Saturday Knights" (TSK). You can visit them on MySpace.

The Sick Sac

Received From: Bruce Kelly
Print or Image Color: Blue, Gray
Background / Bag Color: White Plastic
This is a commercial bag that's unremarkable, but you can go to their website to buy bags on your own. Bag is notable because the opening is fluted open so that you don't miss the mark.

The Texas Barf Bag Massacre

Received From: Shawn Smith
Print or Image Color: Red
Background / Bag Color: White
This bag houses the book, 'Red Ink: Terror in 2000 A.D.'. The bag itself is meant to commemorate the Texas Chainsaw Massacre (I'd love one of those bags!). The back of the bag features a skull and crossbones with the sage words, "I barf therefore I am". All in all, a winner. I paid $9 for this on eBay.

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

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

If you can believe the bags themselves, they are limited runs of 25 or 50.

This particular bag seems to be modeled after the Mark of the Devil bags and saya

Thirst Aid Kit

Approximate Vintage: 2005
Received From: Lynn Barton
Print or Image Color: Black
Background / Bag Color: White
Although this looks like someone just wrote "Sick Bag" on the sickbag with a magic marker, it is printed on. The bag came as part of a "Downinone" Morning After kit, along with earplugs, ice pack, blindfold, instant coffee, and do not disturb sign.
