Chinese netizens marveled at the appetites of four travelers who ate 30 kilograms of oranges in under 30 minutes at an airport in Kunming, Southwest China's Yunnan Province, as the 300 yuan ($46.38) luggage fee for the fruit was simply "more than they could afford."

A man, surnamed Wang, and his colleagues bought a box of oranges weighing 30 kilograms for 50 yuan during their business trip to Kunming. As they prepare to board the plane back, the airport said it was going to charge them 10 yuan for each kilogram in shipping fees for the oranges, totaling 300 yuan.

Finding the fee too expensive, Wang and his colleagues made a decision. "We just stood there and ate the whole thing up. It took about 20-30 minutes," Wang said.

After completing the feat, however, they started to suffer from ulcers in their mouths.  

"We never want to have any oranges again," Wang said.

Netizens on China's social media platforms were amused by their determination, while laughing at their foolishness. "Couldn't they pack the oranges into four pieces of hand luggage and carry them into the cabin?"
