No More Snakes On A Plane: New Rules For Emotional Support Animals

Picture this: you're walking down the aisle in an airplane and when you find your seat, there's a turkey sitting next to it. Or a pig. Or a monkey. It sounds like a comedy routine, but it isn't. In the past few years, there has been an unprecedented rise in people having 'emotional support animals', particularly when traveling on airplanes.

Never change, you crazy gorilla-loving bastards. Never change.

First, the President complimented the clock and extended an invite to the White House.



Then Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg applauded Ahmed's ingenuity and desire to build. And also extended an invitation to the company.

You’ve probably seen the story about Ahmed, the 14 year old student in Texas who built a clock and was arrested when he...
