While cell phones have come a long way from the large brick-like phones of yesteryear, there are still limits as to what they can do. This person, however, decided to test the limits of what a cell phone could (or rather, should) do when they combined a knife and other sharp objects with an ordinary cell phone case.
Even if it’s attached to a case, knives are still prohibited onboard an aircraft. We also think this could make for a very painful mistake if you press the wrong button while talking on the phone!
Well…. That’s Random….
While some discoveries made by airport security are dramatic or fascinating, some are just random - like this guitar and lampshade that someone left. While we can understand someone leaving a guitar (especially if they were carrying multiple suitcases), we have no idea how that lampshade ended up there.
Why would you go through all of the hassle of transporting a large lampshade to the airport only to leave it? Perhaps the TSA should sell these items to college students, we definitely can see these two items in a dorm somewhere!
And He Would Have Gotten Away With it, Too…
As children, many of us loved spending our Saturdays watching cartoons, especially Scooby Doo. The goofy dog and his crime-solving crew have been captivating us for decades with their hilarious and entertaining hijinks. Some people, however, seem to carry their love for the cartoon way into adulthood … and even for their illegal activities.
This person thought that no one would notice their weapons hidden carefully in a Scooby Doo card. And he would’ve gotten away with it too, if it weren't for those TSA agents!
Might Be Hard to Reach Your Gate Without This
Most modern airports are like mini-cities with different terminals, gates, and restaurants. But with all of that travel, you would think that someone who uses a prosthetic leg would think twice about leaving this essential part of their life at the TSA security checkpoint.
Unfortunately, that’s exactly what happened in Washington D.C.’s Reagan airport. Thankfully, it turned out that the leg belonged to a prosthetic devices salesman who was running late. We’re sure that running was even harder without a leg!
Spread Your Wings…. And Fly Commercial!
Most security officers working at major airports typically see the same sort of things on a daily basis, which means seeing something like a real bald eagle is probably very exciting. Passengers and security officers got to get up close and personal with the symbol of our country, a bald eagle named Clark.
Clark, who lives at the World Bird Sanctuary, put on quite the show for the officers, even spreading his wings. We’re sure those wings were happy to take a bit of a break and let someone else do the flying!
