The words “Malaysia Airlines” have become synonymous with tragedy, heartbreak, awful crisis management, and an utter lack of basic human decency. But the airline hit a new low this week with a ticket giveaway contest that asked potential passengers which destinations are on their bucket list. Yes, you read that correctly. Malaysia Airlines asked people where they want to fly before they die. You know what isn’t on anyone’s bucket list? Flying Malaysia Airlines!
If you’re asking how Malaysia Airlines and the Malaysian government can continually bungle things so badly, you’re not alone. We asked this very question in our Malaysia episode:
Flying Malaysia Airlines is on my “fuck it” list.

If you feel so inclined, I encourage you to donate to Project ALS to help combat this disease - that’s what I did.
Steven Seagal is in hot water again. As many of you know, Seagal has become WTFAW’s unofficial foreign affairs correspondent with his frequent pronouncements on world events (e.g. “Vladimir Putin is one of the greatest world leaders alive today.”) What you may not know is that he is also a blues guitarist. Yes, a blues guitarist. Don’t feel badly. Nobody knew that. Except Estonians apparently. Seagal was scheduled to HEADLINE the Augustibluus blues festival in Haapsalu, Estonia next month. No longer. Seagal was just banned from performing. It seems Estonians stopped listening to Seagal’s blues and started listening to his views. Poor Seagal. He’ll need to find somewhere else to play “I Can’t Quit You, Vladi.”
For more on Steven Seagal’s bromance with Vladimir Putin, listen to our episode on Ukraine!
Estonia has Steven Seagal singin’ the blues!
