OMG [TSA self congratulations]
 
Sorry, but that's the only title I could come up with for this thread. OMG.



What do you discuss with your TSA agent?

Believe it or not, that’s a question I often ask myself as I approach the gatekeepers of airport security.

New TSA Motto.

When no one else is willing to pat your back do it yourself.

So, here it is:

Yep, it is pretty disgusting. Wanna' bet it's already up on AskTSA and on Lisa Farbstein's page?

TSA - We Pat Our Backs and Your Groins.

I prefer the term mouth masturbation. Talking about oneself incessantly to make themselves feel good.

Not bad but I think catocony pretty much nailed it with a short, concise phrase that is point on.

I'm proud of that one. I'm thinking of having t-shirts and caps made up.

For the T shirt I would suggest a layout as such:
TSA
We Pat Our Backs and Your Groins

Perhaps with the outline of a generic badge in the background.:D

Put it on the back of the t-shirt and wear an over-shirt right up to the xray. That way TSA hopefully won't see it until you've cleared the checkpoint, but everyone behind you in line will.

From the article:

"What’s more, rather than someone about to hassle me for failing to remove my belt, Officer Smith was humanized in my eyes — and then some. As far as I was concerned, she was a hero for making sure that borderline machete wasn’t flying to Denver in the seat next to me."

JFC Will, take it down a notch. Borderline Machete? It's a FOUR INCH BLADE! He found a knife someone accidentally left in their bag, he didn't foil a multinational terrorist ring. You know what the TSA's failure rate is in detecting prohibited items in luggage? Up to 95%. If this wasn't so gushingly bad I would think it was written by the TSA as a propaganda piece.

Much better if it was a toenail clipper with a 2" file.

In the interests of full disclosure, the TSA should add a disclaimer at the bottom of this picture: "During test audits, we failed to detect these objects 67 out of 70 times, so you should consider purchasing flight insurance."

I'd like to see TSA set up a separate 'catch of the week' to show us all the terrible things they've found concealed in breast milk and crotches during the past week.

Might even show pics of deadly granola bars that nearly got by - well, unless the confiscating TSO already ate the deadly evidence.

Add the hair of women of color to your list, Chollie.
