But they're our Keystone Kops

The TSA can be so cute sometimes. Take the latest war against liquids, for instance. They tested - twice, mind you - a liquid that was carried into a terminal in a woman's luggage as positive for being an explosive. It turned out to be makeup. Now, to be fair, maybe it was some sort of collagen based product to make her lips appear fuller or to get rid of wrinkles.

More bizarre than that is this tale of a man who accidentally flushed his iPod down an airline toilet. Her tried to warn that he knew what the item in the toilet was, but was ignored. The plane was diverted, passengers were evacuated, the plane was searched. Only stink bombs were found. Short version here.
