    Typcial TSA inspectors . . . the spear is overlooked but he’ll probably have to remove his belt.

    He should’ve known to leave the suit of mail at home…

  3. I bet they make him take off the crown and run it through the scanner again.

    Reminds me of an actual TSA experience I saw, which in this case was not anti TSA.

    A woman in front of me was putting her belongings on the belt for the X-ray machine, acting in all ways as if she was very familiar with travel procedures. She put her coat on the belt and stepped up to the metal detector (pre scanner days). The TSA agent took one look at her, wearing a dress _covered_ with large metal studs, and just said “You’ve _got_ to be kidding me!” At that point she looked down, and said ‘Oh!’ I moved on and didn’t see what she had to go through to get through security.

    I have two steel hips, so on my rare encounters with TSA, I must still remove shoes, belt, and so on, and make multiple trips through the arch, each time explaining that it is pointless. One does not qualify for government jobs by being the brightest applicant, I guess. And that includes the ones writing the procedures.

    TSA = Security Theater. It exists to make passengers feel safe.

    robtbrown: Or perhaps to annoy the terrorists enough that they will take the bus. It’s another fine example of our tax dollars being thrown away.
