That's how they got in

Prior to 1997, the airport in Bristol, England was known as Lulsgate International Airport.

I can only speculate that someone in Bristol was aware of the growing internet presence in the world, and the culture that came with it, and pushed through a name change to prevent it from being an obvious entry point for foreign lulz.

Why this airport's terminal has no jetways is a completely unrelated mystery.
