Have you ever gotten something taken away by TSA? I’ve heard people trying to plead their case with TSA on some items, especially when it’s a personal item. Well recently, a woman at a St. Louis airport was stopped by TSA try trying to bring her sock puppet through security screening. I know what you’re first thinking… probably drugs stuffed inside or something but no, it’s actually way less malicious. This sock puppet was dressed up like a cowboy and so it had a little 2-inch plastic revolver on his belt, you know… like a cowboy. TSA was not amused and confiscated the sock monkey gun. The TSA agent said, “If I held it up to your neck, you wouldn’t know if it was real or not.” I guess that’s true but someone could do the same thing with a magic marker and I wouldn’t know either. There’s a lot of gray area when it comes to this stuff but I guess we have to remember that it’s all for our own safety. So just in case, leave little toy guns at home… you hear that, GI Joe? I’m talkin’ to you! Read more [here] if you missed the story.
Have you been caught using your cell phone while driving? I heard you can out of a ticket by writing a letter promising that you’ll start using your headset or bluetooth earpiece. Well anyway, a guy in Los Angeles decided to try and prank police officers by making cookies shaped like iPhones. He’d hold it up to his face and after he gets pulled over and the cop comes by, he’d take a bite out of the cookie and ask if eating cookies are illegal. I guess it really depends on the police officers sense of humor. But for this guy, it got him a ticket anyway. It’s a hilarious prank, don’t get me wrong …. you just have to ask yourself if it’s worth it. If it’s any consolation, the cookie looks delicious. Spoken like a true fat boy, right? Missed the story?
