And It Didn't Work?!: Man Tries To Board Plane With Pet Turtle Disguised As Hamburger
Note: Picture is not of the actual turtle burger, because there's no way TSA wouldn't have fallen for this one.
A man in China recently tried to sneak his pet turtle onto a plane between the buns of a KFC hamburger (or possible chicken sandwich). Unfortunately, the disguise wasn't good enough to fool airport security. Hey, I'm as shocked as you are -- I know a foolproof plan when I hear one.
As Li passed through airport security, X-ray screening machines detected a few "odd protrusions" sticking out of a KFC burger that the man had packed in his bag.
Airport staff determined that the protrusions looked suspiciously like turtle limbs, and asked to inspect Li's luggage.
"There's no turtle in there, just a hamburger," Li reportedly insisted. "There's nothing special to see inside."
Li finally acquiesced to an inspection after repeated requests from airport staff, who uncovered the pet turtle hidden inside the burger. When asked why he had devised this strange idea, Li said that he had only wanted to travel together with his "beloved" turtle.
After staff patiently explained that turtles could not be smuggled on board the plane, Li reluctantly agreed to allow a friend to care for his pet while he was away.
A hamburger, really? I mean I get the shape of a hamburger bun and a turtle are similar, but that's about it. No, if you really want to disguise a turtle on a flight you need to make it look like a bowl of soup -- turtle soup. MWAHAHAHAHAHA!! Jk jk, Michelangelo and the gang, I would never do that. *Donatello breaks both my legs with his bō staff* I deserved that, I really did.
Thanks to john, who's surprised dude didn't go with a classic nachos disguise.
