TSA Strikes Yet Again: They Stole My Cupcake!
A woman flying from Las Vegas to Boston learned the hard way that "what comes from Vegas, stays in Vegas." Well, sorta, at least. The woman attempted to pass through the TSA screening with a frosted cupcake. A cupcake. The TSA officer (shown below) thought the frosting could be a security risk, so he seized it.
Bubba consumed the cupcake to keep 'murrica safe.
Seriously, though, this is just another instance of TSA using its obscene power and authority for the sole purpose of oppressing the American public in the name of security. It was bad enough when Richard Reid tried to light his shoe, and caused the American public to shuffle through the local Checkpoint Charlie barefoot. Then we had last year's infamous "UndieBomber" and the rigamarole about water and shampoo. Now, frosting is considered a possible terrorist threat.
C'mon, people, get real.
Frosting? A threat?
Maybe to the Jenny Craig crowd, but fergawdsake, give me a break.
