Are You Having A Laugh


Liverpool, England has the John Lennon International Airport and now Birmingham is seriously considering a proposal to rename Birmingham Airport after the inimitable Ozzy Osbourne. This unlikely idea for the “Ozzy Osbourne International Airport” comes from Jim Thompson, the director of Big Bear Records and the man who “discovered” Black Sabbath.


This seemingly farfetched plan actually fits quite well with the city’s destination Birmingham tourism campaign that hopes to increase visits by music fans. Stranger things have happened with airport renaming. After all, Washington D.C. rebranded its airport after another notorious fiend.
