Don't joke about having Ebola on a plane

10 October 2014

ebola plane If you joke that you have Ebola while on a plane, you can expect it to cause a load of bother for you and everyone else.

However, that didn't stop one bloke doing exactly that one an American flight who reportedly said: "I have Ebola, you are all screwed."


Of course, as soon as the plane landed, it all got a bit E.T. with officials in science suits boarding the aircraft and removing the joker. Thanks to people with mobile phones, someone caught a nice video of it all, including the air hostess calling the man "an idiot."

As the man makes his way off the plane, you can hear him say: "I was just kidding... I ain't from Africa." Tough cheese. And little reward for the poor buggers who had to sit on the plane for two hours while medical teams ran tests and evaluations on Mr Backfired Joke.

You want to see the video don't you?

    The hazmat suits are pointless anyway, Ebola isn't airborne
