HALLOWEEN WARNING !

Happy Halloween skull

TRANSCRIPT & TRANSLATION: The 31st of October, Halloween. An Garda Síochána are issuing warnings on a variety of costumes that have been considered naff, grinch, and try-hard:

Le 31 octobre, Halloween. La police irlandaise est en train de lancer des avertissements sur une variété de costumes qui ont été considérés comme ringards, rabat-joies et tocards-flambeurs.

  • the Jack Sparrow costume;

  • the Joker from the Dark Knight;

  • Harley Quinn;

  • the Pikachu Onesie;

These costumes are both unoriginal and unhilarious. They’ve been done to death. Don’t risk it.

Ces costumes n’ont rien ni d’original, ni d’hilarant. Ils ont été faits et refaits. Ne vous y risquez pas.

0’25’’ Gardaí in partnership with the coastguard have intercepted in the last week a large shipment of shite costumes at Dublin Port. In addition to naff and/or twee. Gardaí have multiple reports of lazy costumes.

La police irlandaise en partenariat avec les gardes-côtes ont intercepté la semaine dernière au port de Dublin, une grosse cargaison de costumes de merde en plus du ringard et/ou kitsch. La police irlandaise détient de nombreux rapports sur des costumes décontractés.

0’40’’ In the early hours of the 24th, a man was apprehended carrying four to five refuse sacks, claiming to be: “bin-laden”.

Aux premières heures du 24 octobre, un homme a été appréhendé. Il portait 4 à 5 sacs-poubelles qui prétendait être « bin-laden » (chargé de poubelles).

Also reports of people dressed as Our Lord Jesus, riding around on BMXs.

Egalement il y a eu des rapports de personnes vêtues comme notre seigneur Jesus, se baladant sur des BMX.

It’s bizarre…

C’est bizarre…

I mean Christ on a bike.

Je veux dire le Christ sur un vélo.

1’00’’ Extra Gardaí have been drafted in this Halloween to deal with the suspected increase in wearing of the clown costume from the IT movie which as of this morning has been upgraded to class-A naff.

Des renforts ont été enrôlés dans la police irlandaise pour Halloween pour faire face à la montée soupçonnée du déguisement de clown du film « Ça ». Déguisement qui a été, dès ce matin, reclassé Classe A de la ringardise.

1’13’’ Get down on the ground! Put your arms out. What is this?

Au sol! Ecartez les bras. Qu’est-ce que c’est?

It’s a Halloween mask.

C’est un masque d’Halloween.

Jesus Christ, that’s naff!

Mon Dieu, c’est ringard!

Who’d you buy it from?

Mais à qui achète-t-on cela?

We need to address the recent upsurge in sexy costumes. Garda O’Hara will now read a list of the main offenders:

Il nous est nécessaire de vous avertir sur la recrudescence de costumes sexy. L’agent O’Hara va maintenant lire une liste des principaux contrevenants:

  • sexy nurse; infirmière sexy

  • sexy teacher; professeur sexy

  • sexy nerd; intello sexy

  • sexy… SpongeBob hot pants; pantamini sexy de Bob l’éponge

  • sexy “Where’s Wally”; « Où est Charlie? » en sexy

  • sexy orthodontist; orthodontiste sexy

We would ask any member of the public to come forward with information

Nous en appelons à tous pour nous fournir des renseignements.

  • sexy Garda…  agent sexy…

1’44’’ Thank you, and remember: be safe, be original, but most importantly, don’t go dressed as Hitler.

Merci, et n’oubliez pas: soyez prudent, soyez original, mais surtout, ne vous habillez pas comme Hitler.

  • Or zombie Hitler  ou Hitler en zombie

Or zombie Hitler – it’s still Hitler.

Ou Hitler en zombie – ça reste Hitler.

PANIC ONBOARD THESE DAYS – not only due to AIR RAGE

 

Panic onboard – That is what happened on a JetBlue aircraft last week. The captain dashed to the bathroom’s door which was locked, got jittery, then running along the aisle, he hollered out insane things such as « They’re going to take us down! ». The passengers wrestled the pilot down, tied him up with seat belts, and he was handed over to the police after landing.

An incident of this kind had already been reported two weeks before. An American Airlines flight attendant had been giving the safety instructions just before takeoff. She suddenly ranted about mechanical issues which were immediately refuted by the other cabin crew members. She kept speaking incoherently about Al-Qaeda, and the 9/11 attacks, about her fears of crashing, etc. A few people managed to wrestle her down, and the passengers were startled and scared as they could hear her blood-curdling screams when she was being handcuffed by the police.

According to these reports, these insane behaviors are believed to be air-rage cases but the flight attendant who got temporarily mad would be deemed bipolar by doctors, and her condition could explain her behavior. As far as the JetBlue pilot is concerned, his neighbors cannot understand as they would see him as a kind person.

Another scary situations occurred in flight this week on Monday April 2, 2012. 80-year-old Helen Collins landed the Cessna 414 twin-engine aircraft in which the pilot – her husband – died a few minutes before at the controls!

Thanks to the video/audio tape hereafter, we can imagine now what was going through her mind as it was the first time she had flown an aeroplane: (video with transcripts – click on the link below)

Outstanding Helen Collins hurt her back, and cracked a rib but she managed to bring the plane to a safe stop at Door County Cherryland Airport, near Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin.

Last but not least, HATS OFF to Braden Blennerhassett, an Australian pilot who never panicked last Tuesday as a SNAKE popped out from the dashboard; slithered down his leg while he was landing! Read the SCRIPT and listen to the video link about this story below:

 

Here is how this brave pilot kept his cool on his aircraft (interview):

 

Another interesting video with the air traffic controller about the emergency message she received:

These recent stories – not to mention the latest crash of an F/A-18D Hornet from Naval Air Station Oceana, Virginia, on Friday in which the pilots managed to bail out safely before the fighter aircraft crashed into an apartment building fortunately left with no death toll – remind us of this well-worn saying: Flying is simply hours of boredom punctuated by moments of stark terror.

Special thanks to Xavier Cotton – Passion pour l’aviation‘s webmaster – for his help and support, and for passing these video links on to me. Thank you very much indeed. 😉
