Drunk Tourist Passes Out On Luggage Conveyor Belt At Airport, Gets Complimentary X-Ray Treatment
Sweet guts, bro.
A drunk Norwegian tourist visiting Italy recently took a nap on a baggage conveyor belt and got x-rayed after trying to check in for a flight but finding no attendant at the desk. Because that's what you do when you're drunk and things don't go your way -- you give up and take a nap. Amazingly, the x-ray radiation didn't turn him into CarryOn Man or anything.
Fifteen minutes later, the tourist was traveling deep into the bowels of the "secure" baggage area, where his huddled, drunken form was spotted on one of the X-Ray baggage scanners.
Airport security's reaction? "There's usually an episode like this once a year and we are alert," an official told the Telegraph.
It happens once a year! Oh man, that's great. I wonder how many times a year a tourist pukes in an airport because they were late for their flight and running with a stomach full of Cinnabon. SPOILER: Both times I've flown this year.
