    Apparently because TSA's resident retards at EWR think it looks like a toy bomb ...

    And TSA continues to demonstrate just why they are the laughing stock of America.

    AYFKM... Im sorry of all that (expletive deleted) things TSA has done I would have gone through the roof on the smurf and his supervisor. I would have also been calling for PD to restrain me and file charges. This is beyond stupid.

    Can i get some help on PV to throw this in Bob and his handlers face that there idiots.

    Blogdad Boobie will just claim the duster was a replica weapon, like the Disney World "Pirates of the Caribbean" toy swords TSA stole from a young boy, the handgun image on the ladies purse recently and other such incidents.

    When dealing with TSA we have to keep in mind that they have absolutely no fricking idea of just what it is they are suppose to be doing.

    These have got to be the biggest idiots on Earth.

    I already think there all incompetent, and treat them as such. This just lowers it a notch or 50.

    Why insult idiots by trying to compare TSA workers to them? What we have here is failure to communicate.

    I really find it difficult to determine a job that most, or even some, of the TSA employees would actually be smart enough to fill. My first thought was manual ditch diggers, but they would inevitably dig the ditch in continuous S curves and dig deepest where the flags are thinking they mark treasure that can be stolen. Morons on a scale we haven't previously seen. I fear for the human race if this is the absolute best critical thinking achievable by the lowest common denominator. I guess the one thing I can take solace in is that, in the past, people like this were relegated to very menial jobs where failure only meant minimal consequences, like self injury and such.

    There is a lot of trash to pick up by the side of the road, (but the prison guards' union might overrule that).

    Sorry, TSA workers are not qualified to pick up trash. Picking up trash requires judgement on determining what is a plant, dirt, or rocks to what is not a plant, dirt, or rocks.

    Perhaps they could handle being target holders at the firing range.

    The solution to that is to put all TSA employees in prison. Which is where they belong.

    Target holders, no. Targets, yes.

    TSA is without a doubt the best example of The Marching Morons I have seen yet. Hmmm, haven't read that story in a while.

    Hopefully with the same outcome as Joan Vollmer Adams :D

    I was thinking of them holding the targets in front on their body.

    On an artillery range, maybe. I've seen no evidence that either a headshot or heart-shot would have any effect, because TSA employees have no vital organs in either location.

    I got a huge laugh out of this story/image. If only we could enjoy the comedic value of TSA without being assaulted and stolen from.
    I'd prefer a velvet revolution, if we can move people along to harmless tasks, TSA really would be great comedy TV fodder: something between Curb Your Enthusiasm and Get Smart. You can't make this stuff up. I look forward to the day the agency is just a bewildering humorous memory.
