Flight Attendant Becomes New Inflight Toilet Paper Roll Racing Champion

No airline has as much fun with toilet paper as Southwest does.

In 2010 a Southwest Airlines flight attendant unfurled a roll of toilet paper down the aisle just to show passengers that the plane’s lavatory would suck the whole thing in when flushed.

A year and a half ago passengers on a Southwest Airlines flight had a toilet paper race.

Flight attendants challenged passengers on each side of the aisle to see which could unroll the paper faster as they passed it from the front of the cabin to the back with the winning side of the aisle promised they’d be able to be first to deplane. (Which, by the way, is not how deplaning works.)

Now a flight attendant has decided to take on the reigning champs and become a toilet paper roll racing team of one as he walks up the aisle.

At least I’m going to assume that the flight attendant did this willingly and wasn’t the victim of a joke by other members of the crew. Passengers, definitely don’t try this inflight because you don’t know how your crewmember will take it, and you could find law enforcement waiting for you when you land (if they can figure out who the perpetrator was among a plane full of passengers). Then again perhaps it was just a prelude to a flush.
