TLP: Mystery Solved, TSA Agents Are Obviously High
Traveling for the holidays? Carrying something frowned upon by the authorities? 'Tis the season to get away with it. For starters, we have the secret ninja daggers that were being smuggled in a hollowed-out book from D.C. to Chicago. This apparently is not a safety concern. Then, there's this.
From a skeptical New York magazine report:
The TSA has a certain reputation for being populated with killjoys, the kind of people who look into your pleading eyes as you beg to be allowed to keep your slightly oversize jar of face cream, and just say, nope, sorry, m'aam. But not everyone there is quite so into following the letter of the law. Earlier this year, for instance, one TSA employee in charge of inspecting a bag that contained a vibrator left the owner a note that said, "Get your freak on, girl." Fairly creepy, and definitely not something TSA employees are supposed to do. Now, there's another note circulating the web that's supposedly from a TSA baggage inspector, according to rapper Freddie Gibbs. "The TSA found my weed and let me keep it. They just left me a note. 'C'mon Son'. Lol." We're not exactly convinced this is real — after all, weed is illegal to take on a plane and vibrators aren't.No surprise if the agents took enough out of the bag to keep from completely hating a workday full of groin-groping and bits-peeping. What were they going to do, sell it?
