Man eats Ryanair scratchcard, but everyone swallows it
Bullshit PR alert ahoy, skipper, AROOGA AROOGA. But the BBC is reporting it, it must be true! A man eating a winning scratchcard worth 10,000 Euros smacks of stretching credibility like a freak show schlong, but when you learn the scratchcard was won on board a Ryanair flight? Meh.
The story goes that the passenger won the scratchcard while flying from Krakow to the East Midlands on Thursday. Upon learning he couldn't claim his prize money immediately, the passenger stood up and in a fit of rage he scoffed the ticket. Ryanair is now donating the prize money to charity, and allowing the public to vote which organisation receives it.
If only the story hadn't broken on a gambling website with a string of blah cut and paste straight from a press release:
“Yesterday’s events prove that while Ryanair’s scratchcards offer large cash prizes they clearly taste great too!”
“Crew tried to stop the air Gourmet Scratch Card eater by offering him one of our great tasting sandwiches, pizzas or snacks instead, but clearly he had much more expensive tastes!”
Fuck entirely off. We're not even mad at Ryanair - this is what they do - but seeing the BBC (and others) report it as a story? Maybe the corporation should get back to checking their facts on last weekend's PM bullying exclusive before they're allowed near the news agenda again.
