When your flight has been canceled and your frustrated anxiousness is cooking to a boiling point under the fluorescent airport lights, the only thing you want to hear on the PA loudspeaker is your name being called from the stand-by list. But now the other thing you won’t mind hearing on the loudspeaker is Cyndi Lauper singing the fuck out of Girls Just Want To Have Fun. That’s what happened at Jorge Newbery Airport in Buenos Aires on Friday after airlines canceled flight after flight.
When the steam rising off of everybody’s asshole started to cause the sprinklers to shake, Cyndi helped out the airline staff by trying to lift everybody’s spirit with SONG! It’s not an open bar, but it’s the next best thing. And I don’t think anybody cared that she was dressed like a Sith Lordess who just raided the sunglasses section of Duty Free.
