    AJC: Atlanta airport diverted by toothbrush

    A portion of Atlanta’s airport, including MARTA rail service, was interrupted for more than half an hour Friday morning because of a toothbrush. Airport officials told Channel 2 Action News that an electric toothbrush began vibrating inside a bag checked onto an AirTran flight, causing workers to alert airport officials to the strange noise. A portion of the North Terminal baggage claim area was cordoned off while the bag was investigated, officials said. Airport passengers and MARTA passengers were diverted to the Terminal South entrance. When officials determined the cause of the noise just before 8:30, the terminal was reopened and MARTA resumed regular service.

    This can only mean one of two things:

    1. TSA was involved.

    2. There are other people at ATL who are just as stupid as TSA.
