If you have flown often, you are aware of just how boring the preflight safety instructions are. But in case of emergency they can save your life. A team of flight attendants with Southwest Airlines have come up with a unique way of making sure they have your full attention. Their instructions are something you might hear from the stage of a comedy club. Once you laugh once, they have your full attention.
“Can I pretend to have your attention for just a few moments. My ex-husband, my new boyfriend, and their divorce attorney are going to show you the safety features of this Boeing 737 800-series. It’s been a long day for me.”
“Position your seatbelt tight and low across your hips like my grandmother wears her support bra.”
“If you get mad and want to take your toys and go home, there are eight ways to get there. Two front exit doors, two over the wings, and two rear exits. Exit signs overhead and disco lights lining the floor.”
“In the highly unlikely event that the cabin lands us near a hot tub, everybody gets a tiny weeny yellow Southwest bikini.”
Here are some popular comments left by viewers like you:

Mark Yates agreed, “That is true! The end result is the reception and that’s undeniably positive.”
Elias Saca said, “Well I know her, her name is Marty Cobb, and it was Southwest Airlines flight to Salt Lake City.”
“I think this issue is so serious that I would choose not to fly with that airline if that was their usual professional practice,” wrote one viewer.
In response to those who disliked her approach, Richard Cranium wrote, “Wow, God forbid she tries to provide some entertainment in hopes of brightening a couple people’s day. Get a sense of humor”
