29 Sumo Wrestlers Were on a Plane — Be Thankful You Weren’t
Twenty-nine sumo wrestlers on a plane sounds like the beginning of a joke or a scene left on the cutting room floor for one of the ‘Naked Gun’ movies, but it actually happened.
Twenty-nine sumo wrestlers indeed flew on the same plane to attend a meet in Tokyo and there’s even a picture to prove it. The plane was so packed flight attendants couldn’t walk through to offer beverage service. Insert jumbo jet joke here:

There were 29, which is an odd number. You know what that means, right? Some normal-sized person probably got stuck sitting
under next to one of them. Good luck squeezing through to use the bathroom.
Quite frankly, we’re surprised this flight hasn’t rekindled the debate about whether overweight people should be required to buy two seats.
