       "off of"?

       It's a bit of a put off, is it not, this confusion between off and of, of which the grammaticians must surely make something to sound off on.

       O, f off

       similar to sushi

       why not just make floating luggage? no boat needed.

       you pull bag off wooden boat at airport baggage claim instead of belt
sukiyaki, Nov 07 2008
  

       I rather fancy claiming my luggage with the aid of one of those long poles they drag rowing boats in with.

       uses color plates to indicate flights, red for delta 899, blue for AA 445, etc.

       i'd rather a baggage claim that doesn't make me wait four hours for my bag. I like this though, as long as the boats are shaped like plastic ducks or swans.

       "No loitering in the terminal sir."
"Oh, I'm not loitering, I'm wading for my luggage."

       basically luggage coming on a sushi boat hauled by a chain
sukiyaki, Nov 11 2008
  

       Could be a bit of a drag, having to wait for them to come through the locks.
coprocephalous, Nov 11 2008
  

       why didn't you articulate the idea in the first place? I was sure you had meant boats in water!
xandram, Nov 11 2008
  

       No, it's sushi. It's a very portable and nutritious foodstuff, and its use should be promoted in airports, which is happening here.   

       He wants sushi to be sold at the baggage claim, which just so happens to be rearranged to resemble boats in a canal probably because children can get their little fingers caught in the traditional belt system and I'd rather save my kid from drowning than have his bloody fingers all over his brand new luggage. Anyways, people don't go hungry with a sushi or two while watching boats pass down the canal. Very nice.   

       Whether or not the sushi will be distributed in one of those unheardof variations as UnaBubba suggests is beyond me. Probably not, that would just be stupid and gross, as he points out.

       no sushi involved, just luggage on the boats similar to sushi
sukiyaki, Nov 12 2008
  

       Oh, yes I think sushi shaped luggage is just fantastic! [[[+]]]
daseva, Nov 12 2008
  

       luggage is placed on the sushi boat, along with radomon sushi
sukiyaki, Nov 19 2008
  

       Yes - I'd love to see sushi-shaped luggage going round the baggage carousel
hippo, Nov 19 2008
  

       O, f off. (echo)

       OITA, Japan airport puts giant fake sushi on baggage claim belt
