Things You Can't Do on a Plane: Vol. 19

You might think that after Volume 1Volume 2Volume 3Volume 4Volume 5Volume 6Volume 7Volume 8, Volume 9Volume 10Volume 11Volume 12Volume 13Volume 14Volume 15Volume 16Volume 17 and Volume 18 of Things You Can't Do on a Plane, that we'd have exhausted the list of things you can't do on a plane. Nope! The list grows daily.

Here are three more things I've recently learned that you cannot do on a plane:

  • Attempt to bring four yak skulls from Tibet back to the U.S. Passengers may not try to sneak yak skulls into the U.S. in a duffle bag, particularly when the yak skulls still have dried flesh attached. CONSEQUENCE: The yak skulls will be seized and destroyed under high-pressure steam. 
  • Fly while wearing a T-shirt that reads, "If I wanted the government in my womb, I'd f*ck a senator!" Passengers may not wear a T-shirt with the above "offensive" language on it. CONSEQUENCE: Passenger will be told mid-flight that she will need to buy a new shirt if she wants to board her connecting flight, and pilot will alert gate crew on connecting flight to be on watch for the offensive shirt. 
  • Attempt to board a plane while carrying a gun (pilot edition). Airline pilots may not attempt to board their plane with a gun in their bag unless they are members of a federal Flight Deck Officer Program. CONSEQUENCEPilot will be arrested and charged with possessing a concealed firearm.
