A PASSENGER attempting to fly into Dublin sent ripples of laughter throughout the Twittersphere after posing a rather bizarre question to the admin of the airport's Twitter account.
Most people normally ask about luggage allowance, flight discounts or about getting a cheeky little upgrade, but this was no normal enquiry.
The passenger wanted to know - for whatever reason - if they were allowed to bring their frozen eel through customs.
Yes. Their frozen eel. You read that correctly.
Dublin Airport Twitter, who have developed quite the reputation for clever responses, were ready and waiting, and weren't about to let this off the hook lightly!
"Are you coding?" They asked.
"Sorry, that should be fine if from another EU country.
"Eel meat again … don't know where, don’t know when … (We’re here all week.)"

"That's one thing I miss about working in Dublin Airport, the randomness," one user wrote in response.
"Amazing what you find on the net these days," said another.
Both are clearly pushing for a plaice (*wink*) in Dublin Airport's social media team.
