People are mad at United Airlines! People are also riffing on the incident for the amusement of many!

(Just look at the user’s feed for the whole thing.)
The alt-cast happened; Kerrie has already informed me that there will be no sharing:

dumb ambitious young woman with big-time idol dreams and a willingness to be put through arduous physical tortures to maybe be a little bit of a star? If that sounds like you, respond to this call!

Riffing on the Friday Fun, Gokigen Teikoku are basically everything about that theme in a single idol unit, with the catch that they’re doing it all for laughs and to have excuses to get drunk. Recent highlights:

Did you know that Mone/Sui of You’ll Melt More!/Hauptharmonie fame could do some actual drumming?
