Mouse Grounds Nepal Airlines Flight

Late-Night Comics Get More Ammo For Monologues

What do Boeing 757s and elephants have in common? They both turn back when confronted with a mouse!

Fox News reports a Nepal Airlines 757 scheduled for departure from Katmandu to Bangkok Monday never took off after a mouse ran out of a food pantry, and made his way toward the back of the plane. The crew reportedly canceled the flight until they could find the rodent.

Nepal Airlines spokesman Raju K.C. told the Associated Press the mouse likely boarded the plane via a food-catering truck.

The crew managed to get the jet towed to a hangar and evacuated before the passengers even saw the mouse. The airline tells the Associated Press the plane will not fly again until the rodent is found.
