zis is your captain Haridi welcoming both seated and standing passengerson board of Egypt Air.
We apologize for z four days delay in taking off, it was due to badweazer and some overtime I had to put in at z bakery baking Kaak.
zis is flight 717 to Alexandria Airport. Landing zer is not guaranteed,but we will end up somewhere in Egypt. And, if luck is in our favor, wemay even be landing on your village !
Egypt Air has an excellent safety-record. In fact, our safety standardsare so high, zat even terrorists are afraid to fly wiz us!
It is wiz pleasure; I announce zat, starting zis year, over 30% of ourpassengers have reached zeir destination.
If our engines are too noisy for you, on passenger request, we canarrange to turn zem off in order to make sure you are feelingcomfortable!
We regret to inform you, zat today's in-flight movie will not be shownas we forgot to record it from z television. However, for our moviebuffs, we will be flying right next to Somalia Airlines, where zeirmovie will be visible from z right side of z cabin window.
zere is no smoking allowed in zis airplane. Any smoke you see in z cabinis only z early warning system on z engines telling us to slow down! In order to catch important landmarks, we try to fly as close aspossible for z best view. If however, we go a little too close, do letus know. Our enthusiastic co-pilot sometimes flies right srough zlandmark!
Kindly be seated, keep your seat in an upright position for take-off andfasten your seat-belt. For zose of you who can't find a seat-belt,kindly fasten your own belt to z arm of your seat . And, for zose of youwho can't find a seat, do not hesitate to get in touch wiz a stewardesswho will explain how to fasten yourself to your suitcase.
sanking you all for choosing Egypt Air to fly for z first and last time,
I Wish you a nice trip,
Regards from ..

Blacks = Nigger ect..
I can't think of Jewish people ones maybe I should go on an Arabic website.
I was working out which you find offensive and which are not.
E.G Frogs is apparantly non offensive whereas Pakis is offensive?
I disagree with the above by the way

I think "frog" can be offensive but I know what you mean, it's more of an accepted form of racism - dunno why. If England were to play France in a football match it would be all "fuckin' frogs raaargh" but not so much if it were Pakistan. Is it an ethnicity thing? Like, is it worse to call someone a rag-head or a kraut or a spic or a Yank?Funnmy how Spic and Wop are generally considered to be semi-offensive (i.e. if you heard someone say it you'd think of them as racists. If you call someone a Paki or a Nigger then that's definitely racist. But if you call someone a Frog or a Paddy then it's only considered vulgar and offensive, but not really racist (unless it's followed up with serious abuse.).
