TSA Finds Gun-Shaped Toilet Paper Holder in Bag at Airport

提交時間:
 
TSA agents at EWR uncovered a more decorative than deadly item when they checked a passenger’s carry-on. Wouldn't let him carry it on, though, cuz maybe he would use it to hijack the plane. (www.usatoday.com) 更多...

Considering that guns can be shaped like many other non-dangerous items,(cell phones, pens, key fobs, books, etc,) it makes no sense to be afraid of anything shaped like a gun when it so clearly isn't one. I'm sure that it caused quite a stir and some eagle-eyed TSA agent got a beanie button.

Now let's try for an actual toilet

Another fine example of TSA "security theater".

I feel so much safer that a guy couldn't bring a toilet paper holder onto an aircraft. This was almost as bad as the lady who had to give up her leather purse because it had an old-fashioned 6-shooter embroidered on it among other Old West thematic elements (horses, wagons, etc.).

Haha! My ex received a desk lamp covered with seashells at the last moment while we were in the Philippines. It was far to delicate to check, so she carried it on. It caused quite a stir in Hong Kong as the lamp was vaguely shaped like a tank round. They could see it wasn't dangerous, but demanded it to be taken out. They sent us on our way with a smile and a wave.


That same trip, at a further checkpoint, my binoculars looked odd on the conveyor. They asked me to take them out, and of course those were ok as well.

And in Cabo, the monitor for the x-ray machine was turned off! There was nothing showing on their screen as I was watching. They had turned the monitor so far that was hard to see, but it was off! This was a few years ago. I felt so safe after seeing that, YIKES!!!
