United Airlines Says Peacock Can't Fly

Matthew, Live and Let's Fly: Recently, I argued that airlines must crack down on the abuse of emotional support animals. Passengers continue to twist federal law to bypass pet cargo fees and bring animals onboard who do not belong onboard. Case in point: a woman tried to bring a peacock onboard a recent United Airlines flight at Newark Liberty International Airport. She did offer to pay for a second seat for this oversized bird, but claimed she had a right to bring it onboard as her emotional support animal.

Of course you don't take a peacock on a plane!

They are bad luck. The tail feathers have the evil eye on them.

It is considered extremely unlucky to even have them in a house.

They are believed by some to bring losses and various misfortunes,
including illness and death.

Don't get mad at me. I don't make the superstition rules.

These comfort animals are stupid.

The people that have them are even dumber.

People didn't eat tide pods for likes on social media or fly with emotional support peacocks until dementia don was elected.

I wonder if parents in ****hole countries have to tell their teenage kids to keep the laundry detergent out of their mouths...

Too bad, NBC. You'll have to take greyhound or amtrak.

Trump, having one, will sign an Executive order allowing anyone with this condition to fly.

"As God is my witness, I thought turkeys peacocks could fly!!! -- Arthur Carlson, WKRP in Cincinnati."

Truly one of the funniest shows from that series.
