Breaking news from Chicago – a passenger has been removed from a Southwest Airlines flight for repeatedly poking (not stabbing as originally rumored on Twitter) a fellow passenger with a pen. The unfortunate poking victim’s crime? Apparently, he was snoring. According to ABC7 in Chicago,

“A Southwest spokesperson said a passenger on Flight 577 was removed from the flight for “poking her seatmate with a pen to stop him from snoring.”

Remind me to sleep with one eye open next time I fly Southwest. 🙂 Here’s the scoop courtesy of ABC7.
