Airlines have been brought down to earth by everything fro bad weather to mechanical malfunctions but a recent grounding of a Flyin' Air flight may have been a first for any airline in the world.
Flying from Budapest to Dublin, the flight required diversion to Frankfurt after a passenger went into an allergic shock due to exposure to mushrooms. At first the airline officials suspected funny fungi of the hallucinagenic variety and arrested 80 year old Babushka O'Brien , an Hungarian- Irish grandmother who regularly flies back and forth from Ireland to Hungary to visit her many grandkids.
"At first we thought that the old lady was a drug mule. She takes monthly flights from the Emerald Isle to Goulashland. Then she turns out to be the source of the mushies that sends one of our passengers off the wall like a Tim Leary test subject...What would you think?
Then after testing the substance and the allergic jerk who panicked when a little mushroom and barley soup leaked on his head from the overhead compartment, we knew that she was really just a little old grandma bringing homemade soup to her grands!
