Man tries to smuggle a turtle aboard a plane by disguising it as a burger

New KFC Value Meal

A man being identified as ‘Mr. Li’ was stopped at China’s Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport after security officials noticed something unusual about his suitcase.

The X-ray machine showed a suspicious KFC sandwich package. When a security official noted that the “sandwich” looked remarkably like a turtle, Mr.  Li replied,

“There is no turtle in there, just a hamburger. There’s nothing special to see inside.”

If it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck…

Not one to believe to a passenger at face value, the security official pressed the issue. Finally Mr. Li admitted the sandwich was really his beloved pet turtle.

Mr. Li didn’t want to travel without his four-legged best friend, so he tried to smuggle him onto the aircraft. Eventually Mr. Li relinquished the turtle to a trusted friend, and Mr. Li continued on his way.
