What might just be worse than snakes on a plane? Cockroaches on a plane, of course.
Recently two airplanes that landed at Kunming’s Changshui International Airport were found to be carrying dozens of unsavory stowaways on board, for a total of more than 100 roaches.
Unfortunately, details about these cases have been not released. It’s not clear how the cockroaches got on board, which airline(s) they invaded and from what port(s) of origin.
We do at least know that the cockroaches are German. Not from Germany, mind you, but German cockroaches, the smallest type of common roaches.
However, no pics of a cockroach-infested plane have been published. China News Service simply carries a single photo showing inspectors looking over one of the planes at the Kunming airport. We assume that these guys have had it with these motherfucking roaches on these motherfucking planes.
While alarming, this isn’t all that surprising. Last year, a flight from Hangzhou was forced to turn around after a rat was discovered on board. Back in 2013, 11 rats were found hiding underneath business class seats on a flight from Hong Kong to Xiamen.
Meanwhile, cockroaches can more commonly be found on top of lattes in Taiwan and inside your ear.
