04:55 pm - Silly Acronym Lightly Amused My Intellect
Everyone loves bad film villains. The hallmark of a good bad film villain is an evil organisation with a fantastic acronym explaining - or proclaiming - just how naughty it is.

A US regional airline called Midwest Express are in a pay dispute with their workers, who have implemented random strikes and other work disruptions. The name of these workers' industrial action is CHAOS - Create Havoc Around Our System.

Hold on, I've missed something there. It actually is CHAOS™.

Dr. Evil - Dr. Evil™? - would be proud.

Dr. Evil: Let me tell you a little story about a man named Sh! Sh! even before you start. That was a pre-emptive "sh!" Now, I have a whole bag of "sh!" with your name on it.

Still haven't seen Goldmember yet - need to get in touch with the guy with whom I used to go and see cheap movies in the morning. Probably time to get moving before long.

Just as an update, there's no more CHAOS.

IIRC, the talks ended Friday with a contract both sides could agree with, and the union is expected to vote the way of the union negotiators.

Oh, yeah, there was no havoc. None at all. Zip. Zilch. Zero. Nada. The Green House on WTMJ-620 was making fun of the non-chaotic CHAOS.

Oh, geez... I didn't even go to your links because I knew about the topic. I'm an idiot.

I'm suddenly hungry for salami, though.
