r to Jetstar airline after being seated next to someone as big as a ''hippopotamus''A complaint letter to a budget airline outraged at being seated next to a fat passenger has gone viral. Australian Rich Wisken penned a hilarious
and offensive blog post - which you can read in full with all the customary Aussie swears here - demanding compensation from Jetsta
rfor the physical pain and mental suffering caused by being enveloped in human blubber for four hours. Wisken was upset at having paid an additional $25 for an emergency seat which he believed would give him ample room - only to find himself next to what
appeared to be an infant hippopotamus who smelled like the decaying anus of a deceased homeless man. He continues: So
r I managed to burrow into my seat, I caught what was to be th
e first of numerous fetid whiffs of body odour. His scent possessed hints of blue cheese and Mumbai slum, with nuances of sweaty flesh and human faeces sprayed with cologne - Eau No . Considering I was visibly under duress,I found it strange that none of the cabin crew offered me another seat. H
aving seen h
is request for another seat declined, he was forced to return t
o his place. I made my way back to Jabba the Hutt and spent the remainder of the flight smoth
ered in side-boob and cellulite, taking shallow breaths to avoid noxious gas poisoning, he wrote.
If I dont recover completely, Ill have to say goodbye to my lifelong dream of becoming Air Guitar World C
hampion. If that occurs, you will pay. He described his ordeal as a 127 Hours-like esc
ape and slammed the cabin crew as unsympat
hetic to his situation.

Jetstar offered him $100 (53) compensation as well as refunding his outlay for the emergency seat.
