A supervisor (ORD T2) came over after the screener summoned him, he looked at the printout and after realizing that the TSA's web site said something totally opposite from him, he said "Do you want to fly today?"

I THREW my shoes into the X-ray, look at the supervisor and said "Which is more difficult for you to come by, sir? Sex or an original thought?" The guy glared at me like he was gonna paste me in the jaw, I was already to ask him to step outside, and I got through after a retaliatory secondary.
