How many plumbers does it take to fix an airplane toilet?
Its a joke with no punch line, as 85 plumbers on a Norwegian flight headed for Germany discovered Saturday when their plane had to return to Oslo because of a broken toilet, reported The Independent. The flight, which departed Oslo bound for Munich, turned back at the Swedish border.
We would have liked to fix the restrooms, but unfortunately it had to be done from the outside and we did not take the opportunity to send a plumber (out) at 10,000 meters, Frank Olsen, a plumbing company CEO aboard the flight, told Norwegian newspaper Dagbladet.

Well ain’t that a s****er
Short flight. I’m surprised they didn’t jest gut it out.
With a broken toilet, I hope they didn’t turn back too abruptly.
Of course they couldn’t fix it they all had belts on at the time.
Well, that was a nasty crack.
I had to check and make sure this story wasn’t from the Babylon Bee, instead of the Sacramento Bee.
It has to be fixed from the outside because THERE ISN’T ENOUGH ROOM ON THE INSIDE, not enough room to just USE IT.
Wow! A new euphemistic cuss-word: "Dagbladet", as in:
"Hey, that's my beer, Dagbladet!"
Just pee in the sink like I always do.
They need to fly an American carrier.
Our President has eliminated the leaks.
We got the best plumbers, don’t we folks?
"Is that a Master Plumber's Toilet Plunger with 19 Inch Handle, or are you just happy to see me?
...On A Plane?
Were they all in the toilet at the same time? A case of too many cooks spoiling the broth
Isnt it ironic, dont ya think?
Maybe it was 85 people pretending to be plumbers.
“Sorry, this has to go back to the shop “
Airplane toilets at totally different from residential. Its a pressure system. Most regular plumbers probably don’t have that training.
Disaster averted! Germany really doesn’t need 85 more plumbers.
