    Story links to one of her reports, "Prague’s Franz Kafka International Named World’s Most Alienating Airport"

    If you've read Kafka, the humour is pretty obvious, but I'm sure somewhere someone will think this is a real broadcast.

    Nice touch at the end about the Dostoevsky Hotel.

    That was hysterical. I REALLY want to stay the nearby Dostoyevsky Hotel, too!

    Is she really cross-eyed or is that an optical illusion?

    It's not an illusion.

    We don't have "Bobbie" up here, same way we don't have "Bubba"

    But it's fixed. :)
