Northwest Airlines selling Penis on its snack menu

ATLANTA – A CNN anchorwoman has caused controversy in the United States after a live broadcast announced that an airline was now selling ‘penis’ on its flights.Zain Verjee was supposed to be reporting that Northwest Airlines had begun selling peanuts on flights when she said the word ‘penis’ three times rather than ‘peanuts’.

‘Northwest began serving penis this month as its merger partner Atlanta-based Delta airlines has done for years,’ Ms Verjee is reported to have said in a news.com.au article.

A number of versions of her faux pas have been uploaded the video sharing website YouTube and become an internet sensation with more than 700,000 views on Wednesday.

Pundits have mused that the caption running across the bottom of the screen may have led to the mistake – it read ‘Nut on Northwest flights’.
