Words I Never Thought I'd Write

Friday, August 25, 2006

Ok, type, actually, if you're picky, but from the annals (no B&B jokes here please) of airport security comes this lovely story:
Mardin Azad Amin found himself in a tight squeeze last week when security at O'Hare Airport discovered a suspicious-looking object in his luggage. So Amin, 29, handled the delicate situation this way: He told security the object was a bomb, Cook County prosecutors said. The security guard then asked Amin to repeat what he'd said to a supervisor. This time, Amin was chuckling as he spoke, prosecutors said. In fact, Amin was trying to disguise the fact that the black object -- resembling a grenade -- was a component for a penis pump.
Ok, several things before people ask: that picture is from the story; and yes, if you follow the link, you can see the poor schlub who got, er, nailed.

All joking aside, though - let's be glad that the TSA guys are paying sufficient attention to go after things that they don't recognize.
