As we approached Kuala Lumpur airport, I guess our Air Asia pilot decided to fly a little close to a thunderstorm. The most amazing roller coaster ride ensued, culminating in everything in the cabin rising gracefully off the seats, two feet in the air before slamming down with a spectacular crash. Needless to say everyone in the plane was screaming blue murder and even the cabin crew looked scared. About five minutes after it calmed down, everyone was amazed by the appearance of a small asian man from the toilet. He staggered out, looking visibly shaken - he'd been in there throughout. The cabin crew screamed at him to sit down and strap himself in. With no belt to hold him down, he had also risen two feet off the toilet and landed on it with enough force to break it clean off the wall. Needless to say, I won't be dawdling on the loo in future.

He was in the right place for a shock like that

Just before this thread moves, may I suggest a 'PAN-PAN-PAN' call would have been appropriate?

There is a Return to Your Seat sign in each loo!

Hmm.....AA should've done a severe turbulence check on the
aircraft after arrival, but did they do one on the bloke's arse?

Well, at least he didn't flip his lid.

"About five minutes after it calmed down, everyone was amazed by the appearance of a small asian man from the toilet".

He might have been over 6 foot tall before this event :E

It was uncertain at first if the gentleman was a paying passenger or a member of the blue man group.

So why did he stay in there for the extra 5 minutes sitting on a busted toilet ? Was he trying to hide the damage ?

Maybe he was trying to dispose of the evidence?

"About five minutes after it calmed down, everyone was amazed by the appearance of a small asian man from the toilet".

Was he wearing a fur collar?

It wasn't turbulence. It wasn't a small Asian man. The real reason for the upset was something quite, quite different.

The investigation board were perplexed by what looked like "fingernail scratches on the wing and fuselage." They'd seen them before, but never the signs of a frantic attempt to cut into the toilet from outside.

Da-da da-da. Da-da da-da . . .
