Barry Day sent me this
bag with a sticker saying "generic bag, light aircraft". That's
a typically British understated description of one of the most fascinating

SIC-SAC from this container and keep ready for use. Do not be embarrassed
by this precaution as even veteran air travelers are subject to occasional

envelope, and another grinning and holding a full bag. The pixies appear
to be racing each other: the one with the full bag is in the lead.

No hints as to how rolling the sac over your fingers is supposed to help
ease your stomach.

wire tie, held on with a sticker featuring those Sic-Sac pixies.
To get your own Sic-Sac, you might try contacting the makers:
