    How fitting! :D This approach has potential but you'd have to ruin a lot of cheap suitcases to send all 60,000 rodents scurrying away ...

    NY Post (26 Mar 2012): Four TSA workers hospitalized by rodent repellent at Boston airport

    Huffington Post (26 Mar 2012): 4 hospitalized by bag odor at Boston airport

    My Fox Boston (26 Mar 2012): Logan Terminal A bag room evacuated after suspicious bag is found

    7 News WHDH (26 Mar 2012): All clear at Logan after chemical found in bag

    Were the clerks perhaps too nosy for their own good, or did the container rupture on its own?

    Hysteria from smelling something they didn't recognize. Vicks anyone?

    I doubt that would cause hysteria among the Surfs. More likely deoderant/anti-perspirant or something along those lines. :eek:

    Rat repellent works on TSA employees. Who knew?

    Maybe there's potential for re-packaging as "Smurf Repellent" with a nifty logo or image to boot. I'm not the entrepreneurial type, but surely someone out there is!

    I wonder if Tiger Balm works as well.

    The Rat=TSO jokes are rampant in these comments. I couldn't resist joining in.

    I'm glad the irony isn't lost on the public.

    Smurfchen? Smurfchen??? :D:D:D You, sir, have outdone yourself. Have you any idea how painful it is to snort Trockenbeerenauslese through your nose?

    Ja, ja. Das habe ich seit zwei oder drei Jahren gesagt, als ich bei MDW wartete und einen Gropengruppe bestehende aus sechs Smurfchen beobachtete.
