Why would anyone want to take rotting meat and maggots on a plane?

Asked by partyparty (9139points) July 1st, 2010

Just read this article about someone on a flight from Atlanta Georgia to Charlotte. They had rotting meat and maggots in their HAND luggage.
Why would anyone want to do this.

Southerners – who knows how their minds work!

Southern deodorant.

Some time ago, a passenger left a food container in one of the overhead compartments. Nobody noticed. Then this happened.

I have to apologize to our Southern citizens for these remarks. We make fun of them because they have some differences with other areas of the US. Some of our best minds have come from the South, and their hospitality is unrivaled anywhere in the world.

Gee, thanks guys.

Someone took food on board because airline food sucks and costs too much. They forgot it in the rush to leave the plane. People cleaning the plane missed it- so it sat and wasted. Voila- maggots.

There are certain foods that are at their best when they are “rotten” and with maggot.

My friend (a French Man) had a cheese he loved and could only get when back in France.
It was a rather stinky cheese with (live) maggots in it. He loved it.

Gotta wonder what it did to his breath.

Sea urchin is also a delicacy. One time working at a house that was on the water.
The sea wall had sea urchins on it. He jumped over the side. Got one, split it open and wiped out the inside with a piece of bread and ate it.

They can’t go anywhere without company??;)

@ChazMaz So was the cheese eaten with the maggots still inside the cheese? Yuck

@chyna @gemiwing Sorry -we New Jerseyites have to get in our licks when we can. You know from The Sopranos that we are inclined to fight dirty.

partyparty's avatar

So what is the joke about Southerners? (I am in the UK)

CMaz's avatar

I’m a “southerner.” We will eat anything. :-)

gemiwing's avatar

@janbb You know I can’t stay mad at that cute face.

@partyparty Compare it to the Northerner/Midlanders/Londoners of England and you’ll get the picture. It’s an old stand-by that Southern people are rural idiots with no teeth, New Jersey is full of mafia kingpins, Californians can’t do anything but surf and smoke weed. Each region of the U.S. is seen as inferior in some way.

chyna's avatar

@janbb It may take me days, but I’ll find a New Jersey jab. :-)
@ChazMazz Well, not everything.

@Janbb What is the love perfume in the air near the Joyce Kilmer rest stop on the Turnpike?

A normal passenger manifest for Easyjet?

Dr_Dredd's avatar

Because there weren’t any lawyers available to bring on board? ;-)

Maybe they had really bad, festering wounds. Maggots are good to remove the dead tissue and promote healing.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@Dr_Dredd You could have stopped after the first sentence. I’m glad it’s not close to chow time.

Dr_Lawrence's avatar

Are maggots a Redneck alternative to meat tenderizer? Never can tell!

CMaz's avatar

We stop eating when then maggots show up.

Dr_Lawrence's avatar

Ya don jus flick ‘em off an stomp ‘em? Waste not, want not!

chyna's avatar

Ok, I’m officially off this thread. You guys are gross.

El_Cadejo's avatar

lol i heard this story on the radio this morning. I lol’d hard.

Berserker's avatar

I’d rather eat spoiled meat and maggots rather than airplane food any day.

partyparty's avatar

Thanks for all your answers. I feel I need to go and be sick now!! LOLL

CMaz's avatar

Just make sure you save it. Might make for a good omelette.

partyparty's avatar

@ChazMaz Oh yuck… I need to be sick again LOLL :-))))

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

I hope that was each of you with the GA’s and not some other sick bastard.

CMaz's avatar

<———- Sick bastard.

GA to you… :-)
