Man Checks Donuts as Luggage, Starts Eating Them on the Baggage Carousel

According to the Nigerian government, wealthy citizens are ordering pizza from London and having it shipped in on British Airways. If I were going to order long distance pizza delivery it wouldn’t be from London, but sometimes you’ll go to great lengths for a special treat.

And pizza has an important tradition in the U.K., since the idea for Brexit was hatched at the Chicago O’Hare Pizzaria Uno. Pilots have been known to order pizza for delayed flights, too.

I know that when I’m super hungry, and my favorite food is right there within reach, I’ve been known to snatch a bite or two before getting it home. A recent survey even suggests that 1 in 4 delivery drivers eats from your food before it gets to you.

So it doesn’t entirely surprise me to see this, though it’s not how I’d have done it:

I have to assume the reason he isn’t wearing a shirt is because he doesn’t want to get any filling on it while eating his donuts. He’ll have a hard time keeping his slice steady as he goes round and round the baggage carousel.

At least he had a reason for riding round and round at baggage claim, and it doesn’t appear to be because he’s high (though he might just have the munchies). On the other hand here’s the lead singer from Puddle of Mud at the Denver airport:

  1. @ Gary — Why is the other comment that was posted here (by another commenter) gone? I thought that you didn’t edit comments?

  2. I like it. You gotta have fun in life.
    Besides, his donuts will be confiscated as goes through customs, might as well have fun.

  3. @Gene I should add/clarify that my policy is not “I don’t remove/edit comments.” I *do* remove extreme sexual, racist comments or edit them when I see them. Note: the fact that I haven’t removed them doesn’t mean I approve! I also remove non-public personal information about people, post someone’s personal cell phone or the home address of an employee of an airline and I’ll zap it.

    In fact I just removed a comment:

  4. @ Gene –

    I posted a comment last night poking fun at Gary about the nonsensical line in the piece: “I have to assume the reason he isn’t wearing a shirt is because he doesn’t want to get sauce on it while eating his donuts. He’ll have a hard time keeping his slice steady as he goes round and round the baggage carousel.” [This has now been somewhat edited in the article but I still see it on the landing page teaser.]

    Donuts don’t have sauce or slices.

    Guess Gary didn’t like me pointing that out.

  5. @ Gary — @Bob’s comment wa the one. You should get a tshirt made that says “I lLove My Trolls!” 🙂

  6. @ Gary — Oh my, I am so sorry you have to deal with such comments as the horrific one you deleted. That kind of hatred and prejudice has no place anywhere.
