Upvote/Downvote: Gronkowski, Nudity and More Crazy Travel News

This week we discovered that clothing was actually optional at the airport.

Be warned, however, that making that decision to drop your clothes means a side trip to the nether regions of airports with security officials serving as your tour guides.

And that is just one of the stories we are highlighting this week.

So join us as we travel the world and figuratively rip back the bed sheets looking for bedbug tidbits.

A Great Week To Give Up Clothes:

As TravelPulse’s Donald Wood reports, there were at least two incidents of overt public nudity at airports this week.

One involved a man who enjoys the pleasant breeze that comes in tandem with being unfettered.

The second was the culmination of a female traveler submitting to frustration and tearing off parcels of her clothing.

Downvote: When all else fails, just start stripping off your clothes like you were 5 years old and your parents were just trying to have some semblance of a date night at Red Lobster.

Now that sounds nice and all, but really there are better ways to meander about in public. And we have found that a healthy majority of them are enjoyed while clothed. This goes for any amount of airport transport.


From the land of nudity to the realm of near nudity, we arrive in the Bahamas, where Rob Gronkowski recently sailed on his famed party cruise.

Upvote: If Disney can command a fleet then we see no reason why Rob Gronkowski can’t entertain legions of travelers aboard his party cruises when he retires.

We want to live in a world where this exists regularly.  

Something is Bugging Kyrie Irving:

NBA star and bed bug buffet Kyrie Irving was in the news this week, taking umbrage with Hilton Hotels & Resorts for its alleged infestation of bedbugs in Irving’s room.

Downvote: We have been scratching since we heard this report, so we can only imagine how hard it has been for Irving to get to bed.

The only cure for bedbugs remains some sort of retroactive amnesia. Here’s to hoping the Cavaliers star can find a soft bed devoid of critters from here on out.

Shiver Me Tinders:

As we discovered this week, it’s good to be single and in the airline industry, because pilots and flight attendants made the list of most right-swiped professions on the app.

Upvote: We are well aware that these awesome professionals make up a sizable portion of that special demographic of the super cool.

Consider this the final word and the only fact airlines need to recruit for the foreseeable future.
