The lesson learned in this story is that you should always have the right tool for the job.

You big dummy!!!
I've heard of snakes on a plane, but........
Security officials at China's Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport noticed something rather peculiar in the bag of a traveler identified only as "Mr. Li" on Monday.
The airport's X-ray machine showed “suspicious corners” on what appeared to be a KFC sandwich package, according to the media.
Mr. Li vehemently insisted the item was "nothing but a burger. " When security staff pointed out that the odd shape of the burger resembled that of a turtle, Li replied, “There is no turtle in there, just a hamburger. There's nothing special to see inside."
KFC doesn't sell hamburgers, he should have gotten a Big Mac box instead.
Officials forced Mr. Li to open his bag and found that he was indeed attempting to transport his "beloved" pet turtle on the plane. The man reportedly was able to entrust the animal in a friend's care before continuing on his flight to Beijing.
