Don't joke about Ebola! Man removed from plane after joking that he has disease

This is one joke that you should not crack when you're on a plane.

A man who was boarding a US Airways flight 850 at Philadelphia sneezed on a plane.

While that's pretty normal, he decided to follow it up by saying that he was from Africa - sparking Ebola fear in a country that is already on high alert for the epidemic.

Some media reported that he also said: "I have Ebola, you are all screwed."

The flight, which was headed to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, was then grounded until a medical team, wearing protective clothing, removed and isolated the passenger.

It became clear after that the man had never travelled to Africa, nor did he have Ebola.

Now we know there are two words you can never mention on a plane: Bombs and Ebola. Take note.
