This plane couldn't take off because there was a guy dancing on the wing... until he fell off face first.

What the heck was this man doing?

41-year-old Alejandro Carlson apparently thought it would be a great idea to climb onto an Alaska Airlines jet leaving Las Vegas. Can you imagine being a passenger on that plane? One minute you're ignoring the pre-flight instructions, looking around to see if there are any maskless two-year-olds to report, and rage-tweeting about the topic of the day when you see a dude climb past your window and proceed to dance about the wing.

The pilot immediately notified the tower and authorities responded, but Carlson remained on the wing for 45 minutes before he fell face-first onto the tarmac:

Carlson was treated for minor injuries at the hospital and then booked into jail on the charges of trespassing and disregard for public safety.

In the latter category, I feel it is important – nay, my duty as a citizen under our benevolent leaders – to point out that this man wasn't wearing a mask. If there is one charge of disregard for safety that should be brought to bear, it's that he was breathing all over the place outside that pressurized hull and those vacuum-sealed windows!

Lest you think I say this only in jest, remember that we now live in clown world and anything is possible.
