At least it wasn't a blonde bombshell

It was probably just a cross-cultural misunderstanding. A United Airlines plane had just taken off from Sydney to LA when a note was found in the bathroom with the initials B.O.B. Thinking this was SOS for "bomb on board," the pilot took them back to Sydney. No bomb was found.

In Australia, B.O.B. often means "best on board," for "the most attractive passenger."
