quick hit: stupid headline

What a drag! Virgin's Branson, AirAsia's Fernandes may dress as stewardess after racing duel

Wow. Offensive enough headline? First the stupid pun on 'drag'. What a drag... so dressing as a woman is *so* humiliating that it's what happens if you lose a bet. Then, "stewardess"? What is this, 1972? Why not throw in "oriental" or "negro" and get a trifecta?
