LONDON, UK. A passenger settling in to a long haul flight from Heathrow to Cape Town was witnessed handing small packages to fellow passengers in his vicinity. Said passengers’ facial expressions were seen morphing from mildly bemused to shock, as upon opening the packages they found a set of nose plugs, similar to those worn by some over-paid athletes, a cheap car air freshener, and a note.
A copy of the note was obtained by this website:
Hi, I’m Colin, part of the digestive system inside Marcel, the fine gentleman who handed you this note.
I’ve been a bit sick recently and prone to frequent rumblings. The doctor said that I’ve got gastro something or other, but all it means is that funny smelling gases will build up inside me and will have to be released. But don’t worry, this will only happen every 10 minutes or so. Please find a couple of items that will surely make it less of an inconvenience to you.
Thank you and have a nice flight! 😉
Package-wielding passengers were then seen demanding to change their seat, but the 11 hour flight was full that day.
