9-Year-Old Breezes Through Airport Customs with Fake Unicorn Passport
While most of us complain about increasingly tight airport measures, apparently, all you need is a unicorn passport.
9-year-old Emily Harris decided to use her toy passport as she went through the security line of Turkey’s Antalya airport. Interesting enough, the passport with the picture of a pink unicorn got the official stamp of approval.
“I didn’t realize until I was putting the passports away,” Emily’s mom Nicky recalled. “There was a moment of panic when I thought someone would come chasing after us, but nothing.”
“We saw the funny side, and laughed at the fact that the officer had even stamped the passport,” she also added. “But at the same time, it’s a worry to any parent, how easy it would be to smuggle a child through customs and into another country.”
Emily’s passport was a toy that was sold with her stuffed unicorn. And while the outside of the passport read “European Union, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland”, it also contained the outline of a bear. To make matters even more obvious, the inside of the passport featured the unicorn, as well as a space to play games and document “travel adventures.”
I guess a unicorn is a perfectly acceptable mode of entry to Turkey.
