An Unlucky Airplane Passenger Proves Why You Shouldn’t Joke About Ebola.
There are a few things you should never, EVER say on a plane. Talking about guns is frowned upon. Mentioning bomb is right out. And Ebola? Also bad.
An emergency medical crew in hazmat suits rushed on to a plane after a man sneezed and yelled “I have Ebola!” in an apparent prank. The flight was traveling from Philadelphia to Punta Cana in the Dominion Republic. The America passenger did not have Ebola (or a good sense of humor).
The 54-year-old man reportedly sneezed during the flight and said “I have Ebola, you are all screwed”. After landing, all 290 passengers of US Airways Flight 845 were told to stay on the plane until it was declared safe. Some covered their faces while others filmed the officials checking the plane and posted it to YouTube.

Just before the hazmat crew entered the plane, a cabin crew member can be heard saying: “I think the man that has said this is an idiot.” He went through a series of medical checks and interviews after being escorted from the aircraft.
I hope he learned his lesson and the basic rule of comedy: Know Your Audience.
