Mates Prank Stag With Gigantic Boarding Pass
James Ormond is the lucky man getting married, but ahead of their weekend trip over to Poland to celebrate, the best man Dan Rawlinson started handing out the boarding cards to the group.
As you might expect, James had a special one of his own.
Basically, it was over six feet tall and hand to be tediously unfolded at every single checkpoint.
This piece of top trolling was actually the brainchild of James' friend Chris Hodkin. He explained: "It was hilarious, I just couldn't stop laughing and felt like we pulled an appropriate gag for him based on his height.
"One of our friends Isaac [Pailing] works for the council and paid for their printing services - the pass was the size of a bus shelter. It was custom-made.
"James is six-foot-10 and we struggled to get it that big but we pulled it off. It was six-foot-two."
"When the best man was handing out the boarding passes, he didn't hand James one at first and we were winding him up that he was going somewhere else.
"Then he whipped this massive sheet out and it was folded down to bigger than A4 and that was the smallest we could fold it."
Luckily, they'd also printed out a normal one, because they couldn't scan it properly when he was boarding the plane.
Even more remarkably, the airline staff at Jet2 actually thought it was funny. To be fair, there are probably worse stag-related incidents on an almost daily basis.
Chris continued: "We went through the scanners and the two officers asked for his boarding pass.
"They made him hold the whole thing up. One of the lads asked if he could walk really far back and try to scan it from far away, but luckily they'd printed a small one off in case.
"We took it back off him though, so he still had to keep getting it out every time.
"As we were going on to the plane, we walked through and I asked, 'will you make sure you check this guy's boarding pass?' The air hostess said, 'we have to, it's the law'."
"We stood in the corner as he came through and had to open it up to be checked. The staff all took it really well and were laughing too."
Well, at least everyone - including the stag himself - saw the funny side. Hopefully they all made it to, and back from, Poland in one piece and had a decent enough time.
