"Glenn Must Go" bracelet!

Was making small talk with a FA on my flight tonight - commented how much of a joke it was. He agreed and said that they had stooped to a new low.

Came back towards the end of the flight - showed me his bracelet. It was an orange Livestrong-style bracelet - only this one said "Glenn Must Go" in blue with white trim. Awesome! I asked him if it was for sale on the glenntilton.com web site - wasn't familiar with it, said though that "the pilots created them".

First time I've seen/heard of one - anyone else?

WGN in Chicago did a story on it this afternoon. I think it is pretty tacky myself.

No matter how tacky, childish, or immature it is, I want me one! Anyone with some extras want to send one over?

Both FAs in F on a 757 flight to ORD (vague to protect identity) were wearing them yesterday.

Do you think I will get free liquor and an F meal in Y if I am wearing one?

The bracelets are produced by the Flight Attendants union, AFA, not ALPA I've heard, but I'm not 100% sure. Still looking for one myself.

I sent a message to the FA union site asking if I can buy one. No response yet.

What's funnier:

1) Employees with mortgage and car payments wearing "Glenn Must Go Bracelet"

2) Enraged FT PAX complaining about poor service, delays, canceled flights but flying UA wearing a "Glenn Must Go Bracelet"

Irony is so ironic.

That's funny, I was told by several people AFA got them from ALPA...

Irony is also like goldy and bronzy, but it's made of iron.
