Great idea.

If they do a gloveless grope anywhere, just tell them you might be a MRSA carrier when they are done.

Data point- ANC TSA let a water bottle through yesterday afternoon when he was asked and it also made it through the rads box. Amazing. Gotta love Alaska.

They will only tell you that they don't care that you're carrying a MRSA card - it is not a valid form of ID.

Seriously? Do you expect ANY TSA person will know what MRSA is?

Maybe they've seen a movie or the National Inquirer and will recall the word "Ebola" or maybe "flesh-eating virus". hehe

TSO #1 "There. That's procedure, too."

And they both walk away.

I'm sure America is safer because of stuff like this. I just can't figure out how, exactly.

I thought of this, too. I would have to win an Academy Award because I think the last time I took a shot to the groin that doubled me over was in a high school basketball game a long time ago.
