A Germanwings passenger could not find any size restrictions for the printed boarding pass in the terms and conditions of the web check-in service. So he printed it on a giant poster and brought it to the airport.
Just found this on the Germanwings news stream and it was so RANDOM that I thought I'd share it here

I wonder what would happen if you turned up for your flight with another certian LCC in Europe what would happen, (id imagine youd be charged excess baggage or something like that haha, maybe a paper fee and maybe a save the tree fee or something like that too haha)

Finding a girlfriend? What girlfriend?
The picture clearly shows two guys: now, they could be a happy couple too you know... Or is that yet another reason for security screening based on profiling in the US then maybe: alleged gay fanatics!

Quoting moose135 (Reply 4): It's good that he didn't try this in the US - he'd be called aside for some "enhanced screening" for being a wise ass...
I don't even want to think what would be TSA's reaction to this. The lack of brain power is a given. I have never witnessed that much stupidy and lack of common sense as with DFW TSA. Worthy of a serious scientific study.
FAA killed the purpose of my old signature: Use of approved electronic devices is now permitted.

I wish the US airports had this kind of humor. I wonder if they'd let you on board even, they'd probably kick you off and then someone would sue and we'd never hear about it again. Very funny nonetheless

I don't know if it's been done yet, but surely someone is going to try to board a flight with a boarding pass printed on a watermelon, harking back to the sixties when it was comically popular to have game show guests deposit large checks printed on the over-sized fruit.
