Video: Carrie's shocking 'Qantas' slip up
Fair description though.
Like the man says I can't wait to hear the next one.
My favourite is the female US newsreader who after the predicted snow failed to arrive turned to the forecaster and said, "So Bob what happened to the eight inches you promised me last night?"
Not only did he have to leave the set he was laughing so much, so did half the crew.
I've pronounced it 'Quaint Arse' for many years, every since some posh bird with a plum in her gob said it that way to me at the British Airways check-in in Heathrow.
I think I prefer Cuntas though...
It was pronounced Quaint Arse on some comedy show 20 odd years ago. Buggered if I can remember which one though.
Alf Garnett said it mate.
Who's he ?
Yep, it was Alf Garnett (Warren Mitchell). He did a series of TV adverts for Qantas many years ago where he travelled on the airline which he pronounced as "Quaintarse".
Very surprising for the time that i) advertising standards allowed it and ii) the client (Quantas) was quite happy with it.
Leader of the Opposition when Harold Wilson was Prime Minister.
Blimey, you can find anything on YouTube. I'm sure he did ads for Findus Fish Fingers and Wall's Sausages as well. I'll have to do a search.
Long before I was born then.
