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.

Brussels Airlines

Approximate Vintage: 2007
Received From: Oliver Conradi
Print or Image Color: Navy, Orange
Background / Bag Color: Navy, White
Brussels Airlines encourages you to be tidy and clean up the plane's cabin. Next thing you know, they'll be asking us to squeegee the windows and gas up the aircraft.

The bag says:
THIS PAPER BAG CAN BE USED AS:
  • a little bin so you can help keep this airplane clean
  • a piece of paper to doodle on or to practice your origami skills
  • wrapping paper should you have forgotten to wrap the presents for your loved ones
  • a sick bag when you're not felling 100%

BTO (Business Travel Organizer)

Oh my, this bag encourages you to measure your output. It's demarcated with hash marks much like a test tube or measuring cup. See if you can fill it all the way up to voll (full)! The text says (more or less) "How much were you annoyed by your travel agency this time?" and "The First Travel Agency exclusively for the Self-Employed and Small Businesses". An excellent bag all around.

Buddha Air

To see what's so awesome about this bag, look at the picture on the back. It's a woman throwing up what appears to be rice (either that or she's sucking up ants from inside a bag). Not only that, the bag says, "APPLICATION: This bag can be used for vomiting, spitting, throwing the wrappers of chocolates etc, and throwing baby's excreta in the flight period. Thanks!". Buddha Air sure isn't one to sugar coat regurgitation or bowel movements. A true winner!

Interesting font choice.

Bulgaria Air

Approximate Vintage: 2004
Received From: Gerhard Lang
Print or Image Color: Green and Red
Background / Bag Color: White
Nice clean bag with a list bulleted on both sides. The logo looked to me like blood vessels, but that's because I'm cocaine addled.

Bulgarian Air Charter

Approximate Vintage: 2001

Background / Bag Color: White
Resourceful Bulgarian executives had a freshness adhesive taped over a Balkan Air Sickness Bag's logo and called it their own. Those sly dogs!

Bulgarian Air Charter

This flimsy bag seems to hold the record for most repetitions of the word 'Bulgarian' (or any word for that matter) on a single bag. Bulgarian appear in part or entirety 236 times on this bag. Wow! Too bad you have to look in the bag's creases for usage instructions.

Still flimsy, but the design elements have been moved around a bit. The word Bulgarian now appears 243 times.

Despite the Pepsi-Logo knockoff, it's a pretty nice bag. The front of the bag has the enigmatic e-mail address: silvy_star@abv.bg, which sounds a lot like some teenager's myspace name.

Burma Airways

Approximate Vintage: 1977
Received From: Mike Newman
Print or Image Color: Black
Background / Bag Color: Tan
Excellent old bag that's paper and not even lined, from a country that no longer exists.

Burma Airways

Approximate Vintage: 1987
Received From: Linda Weber
Print or Image Color: Black
Background / Bag Color: White
This Burmese (now Myanmar) bag is similar to the 1977 version, however the bag color has changed, they've moved the 4th line of Burmese onto the 3rd line, and they've completely eliminated the footnote. I wonder what was so objectionable about that darn footnote.

This Burmese (now Myanmar) bag is almost identical to the 1987 version, except they printed another line of undecipherable crap on the bottom.

Bush Bag

Approximate Vintage: 2004
Received From: Floyd F. Meyer
Print or Image Color: Blue, Red, Brown, Peach
Background / Bag Color: White
The following message came with the bag:

My Fellow Citizen:

Thank you for choosing Bush-bag model barf bag. It provides temporary relief for those whom are overly full.

I am not a Doctor so how and when to use it is left to your sound judgement.

The camouflage on the back is to remind people we have troops in harms way with no end in sight.

Bush (presumably George W) now has a 2nd bag that touts how nauseating he is. From the fine people of KrappyProducts.com.

C++ Barf Bag

Print or Image Color: Black
Background / Bag Color: White
It says, "Virtually in a Bag by Itself", but a more C++ like catchphrase would be "Virtually in a Class by Itself".

C++ Barf Bag

Much like the other C++ bag except this bag originates from Union Camp, whatever that is. According to bag leviathan Michael Hale, "Union Camp is a fairly large paper manufacturer that makes all kinds of paper products"

CAAC

Here's an example of CAAC without a picture of a plane.

Peter Brown says that CAAC stands for "China Airlines Always Cancels" instead of "Civil Aviation Administration of China"
