Have you ever visited Uzbekistan? Me neither.
I may never go if I need to rely on the Uzbeki (is that a word?) national airline, whose billboard ad wishes us â€œGood Luckâ€ as an airliner disappears into a dense cloud with apparent snowy weather ahead.
Thanks to The International Business Edge for pointing out this fun example of a somewhat misguided effort at language translation.
By coincidence, I stumbled today across a second encouraging article about this fine country. The Kansas City FBI office reported today that â€œan Uzbekistan national pleaded guilty in federal court today to his role in a criminal enterprise involving illegal aliens working in 14 states, including employees at hotels in the Kansas City, Missouri area and in Branson, Missouri.â€
Maybe this fellow and his cohorts were so scared by the prospect of the flying Uzbekistan Airlines that they came to the United States and took up smuggling illegal aliens instead.
