A job well done is worth celebrating, but Turkish Airlines say staff went too far when they sacrificed a camel.
To mark the last delivery of 100 aircraft, maintenance workers clubbed together to buy the beast - and then consume it.
The sacrifice took place at Istanbul international airport.
"They didn't ask permission," a spokeswoman for the airline told the BBC, adding that the boss of the offending staff had been suspended.
It's good advice for all of us. Always remember to ask first before you sacrifice a camel. Miss Manners would be appalled.
