From An Italian tourist on a flight from Sydney to Vienna caused a security alert when he sent a cell phone message to his wife claiming his plane had been hijacked by terrorists, the Australian government said Sunday.

The wife freaked and contacted Italian authorities, who then contacted the Aussies.

The pilot was reportedly contacted while in flight by counterterrorism negotiators, who found him oblivious to any hijacking attempt.

I wonder what's next for this humormeister: “Honey, I have cancer!”
