#TerrorInTheSkies: The Most Unusual TSA finds


We all love to travel.

Taking a train or driving a car to get there sometimes is just not possible.

So we have to take a plane and if you've ever been on a plane before you know you have to go through TSA.

Now you see, TSA agents get a lot of crap and tons of people don't like them. The lines are super long, you have to take off your shoes, and sometimes it may even have you running to your gate.

But after today, I think it's time for us to be a little more grateful for them. They just released a list of the top ten unusual things they've discovered at checkpoints and let's just say I'm grateful they're there to prevent these objects from getting on my flights.

One of the weirdest finds they've found was a traveler attempting to take a sharp kitchen carving knife by concealing it in his baby carrier... with his child in it.

“It could be that the baby took it from the kitchen drawer and folded it up into the bottom of the baby carrier. Or it could be that an adult did it. Your guess is as good as ours. All that TSA knows is that sharp kitchen carving knives have no place in the cabin of an airplane. That’s quite a no-no,” the TSA said in a tongue-in-cheek statement.

Other items on the list included:

Grenades

Ax

Harpoon

Switchblade

Snakes

An apparent bomb

Gigantic scissors

An inert mortar round and finally....

A glove filled with finger blades.

Do we want to know what these passengers were planning to do? No, honestly we don't. But we're grateful for the TSA agents for stopping these items from getting on the plane.

So next time you're stuck in a long TSA line, don't be so annoyed. They're only doing their job.
