A young man from Finland thought one of Switzerland’s most tempting chocolate bars was a weapon for mass destruction.
According to official reports, the 23 year old Antti Oskari Manselius tried to hijack a whole passenger plane with a single bar of Toblerone earlier this year. The guy got on the plane in Amsterdam and during the flight told a stewardess he was going to rob the aircraft. Furthermore, the man was clenching the Toblerone as a weapon and was waving it around while talking. According to the reports, his actions were close to a furious, mad person’s ones, and he even threatened the plane’s crew with a false bomb. The Finn tried to hijack the aircraft in order to go see the Sochi Olympics, but was tied and handcuffed by the crew.
Manselius told the police he was only trying to have fun while entertaining the other passengers. However, he was arrested shortly after the plane landed and his hearing still continues.
