We all know the feeling: you board a flight, put your stuff in the overhead compartment and settle in. But then something happens. Somewhere, from some angle, you witness a neighbor doing something that causes you to question your faith in humanity – or at least learn something about the kinds of things that make us all different, special and unique.
The reasons behind this man’s bizarre choice of clothing are actually pretty interesting. He’s an Orthodox Jew, specifically a Kohein – and as such is forbidden from flying over cemeteries. Consequently, the plastic bag acts as a supposed barrier between him and the dead.
It isn’t the fact that this man has chosen to go topless that’s so off-putting, although it’s far from appealing. It isn’t even that he’s clearly drunk a great deal more wine than he should have. No, it’s what this guy is doing with his hand that singles him out as a nightmare neighbor.
On first glance, it may look like this Icelandic man has been the victim of cruel prank while on his way to J.F.K. But he doesn’t deserve your pity. The truth is that he had far too much to drink and became so rowdy during his flight that he had to be forcibly strapped to his chair. Party on.
If this isn’t the defining image of the start of Spring Break, then we don’t know what is. Indeed, the Borat-inspired green Mankini is the official attire of a guy who plans to remember precisely none of the coming week. Who’s Portia, by the way? And does she know what’s coming in her direction?
He knows what’s going on. He’s knows he’s going to appear online, photographed with a blow-up doll straddling him on a plane. But he just doesn’t seem to care. Surely, the question everyone wants to ask about this image is: just what is the back story here?
We’ve all had bad hair days. But very few of them have been caused by other people’s hair. We wonder if the guy with the dreads even knows what’s going on, though. Perhaps the lady trying to operate the screen could just ask him?
Something tells us this photo was snapped around a holiday period, perhaps Thanksgiving or Christmas. And a few questions spring to mind. Why is there a turkey on board in the first place? Why is the plane so empty? And why is nobody freaking out about the big bird?
We’ve tried to give this male passenger the benefit of the doubt. He may simply have had an itch in an unfortunate area at an unfortunate time. It’s unlikely, however, as he’s reclined his seat, put some headphones on and is glued to his phone that is showing God knows what.
Where do you start with this man? The way that huge belly is being proudly displayed, rather than hidden away, is the first issue. But then the color of the shirt is almost as atrocious. The novel use of the pillowcase as a hat suggests that he might just have had a beer or two in the recent past.
Revisiting an earlier theme, you can’t help but wonder what both of those hands are doing. But, hey, maybe it was a particularly cold flight. One thing that can definitely be said in this lady’s favor is that the photo would have been much, much worse had she fallen asleep with her head at the other end of the row.
We know what you’re thinking: is it used or not? We’re going with no. Perhaps this passenger failed in his attempt to become a member of the mile high club. Or maybe he was attempting to smuggle some contraband. Either way, he could have used the bin.
A dirty protest perhaps? One parent – hopefully it wasn’t the child – decided that the bin was a stretch too far. It could be that they thought it was full or perhaps dealing with a screaming infant in a confined space just got to them. This is probably the most forgivable of the set, but that isn’t saying much.
It must be a great shock to learn that there’s a caveman sat behind you, especially by way of a disgusting foot poking its way through the armrest. It’s no surprise they were glad to get their socks off but that isn’t an excuse for making someone else endure the sight – and smell – of those awful toes.
Surely when an airhostess says, “rubbish anyone?” they aren’t expecting to receive bottles of urine. But how did the airhostess know for sure what was inside that Coca Cola bottle? The smell? The color? The warmth? Not the taste, surely…
At first it just looks like an innocent guy who’s fallen asleep together with his girlfriend. That’s until you look closer and see the gentleman’s right hand resting in the very exposed crotch of his partner. Poor window seat woman.
Surely this can’t be real. How? When? Who? What on earth has gone on here? Some context would have been helpful. Your guesses are as good as ours… frat party, turbulence or possible just one really, really, really drunk passenger.
We want to know if there’s anyone waiting for them on the other side and if so does the card say, “SMITH (AND GIMP)”? It’s strange that he’s brought a separate coat, or that could be his “master’s”. Also, does a gimp have to remove his/her mask when going through security?
What possible explanation could there be for this man getting himself into this position? Perhaps he was mid-way through changing his pants and just forgot to finish. The gentleman in question was snapped in First Class on a flight from London to L.A. Classy.
Sometimes passengers can possibly become a bit too relaxed. Maybe this guy is a relative of pillowcase-hat man pictured above. Perhaps these people should have their own special sections on planes, where their bellies can flop over each other, so that others can avoid the trauma being suffered by the poor guy taking this photograph.
