When you are little, flying is an awesome power possessed by superheroes. Now the idea of flying causes an involuntary groan. Everything about the experience is a hassle, taking off every item of clothing and jewelry but somehow still managing to set off the alarm; being forced to throw away an expensive bottle of face wash because it’s over the legal limit; and let’s not forget endless flight delays.

But even with all the nonsense associated with flying, people still manage to make the best out of a less than ideal situation. Bored Panda has rounded up a list of hilarious photos of people who are winning at life despite being stuck at the airport. These people go against the grain (or more specifically the rules of the moving walkway) and prove that not all heroes wear capes but instead, in one case, strategic joke penis aprons. Scroll down below for the full list and don't forget to upvote your favs!
