“An Australian man has taken the advice ‘only pack the essentials’ to a new level after checking in his luggage at Melbourne airport on Saturday, which consisted of a single can of beer. The passenger was travelling to Perth on Qantas flight QF777 and was determined that his Emu Export lager would be coming with him. The single can was transported with the rest of the luggage bound for Perth. The single can was transported with the rest of the luggage bound for Perth. The beer was tagged and sent off to be loaded onto the plane with the rest of the baggage, which the Melbourne ground staff happily did — but not until they had snapped a few pictures of the unusual check-in item.”
I love it.
Checking a beer for the sake of a joke is a bit obnoxious, (they have it on the plane guy) but we all learned something here. In the future when the TSA starts giving you the business, pull the ultimate power move and say “alright chief, check it.”
