Traveling This Holiday? Here are Some Things You Should NOT Attempt to Take Onto an Airplane

While most Americans know by now that carrying a gun-shaped knife, a sword cane, a set of Batarangs, or bear repellent onto a commercial airplane is a bad idea, apparently it hasn’t quite clicked for some passengers…

Traveling This Holiday? Here are Some Things You Should NOT Attempt to Take Onto an Airplane

Wired:

Hardly a day goes by when someone, somewhere doesn’t try boarding a flight carrying something stupid. Like, say, a loaded 9 mm handgun packed into a computer. Or a baggie of weed stashed in a fake Coke can. The TSA social media team chronicles it all in the amazing, and alarming, TSA Instagram feed. You can expect TSA agents to be busy this week as 49 million people take to the skies for Thanksgiving.

The TSA Instagram feed launched three years ago, and since then the TSA has posted more than 1,000 photos to its 514,000 followers. The TSA employee in charge of the account hasn’t lost their sense of humor yet, as each photo carries a (usually humorous) caption.

In addition to items in carry-ons, some passengers are also confused as to what type of foods are allowed to be carried onto a plane. To help them device, the TSA offers a Twitter account, (@askTSA), where curious citizens can tweet a photo of an item and find out if it’s allowed on a plane.

(We’re guessing a plate of Thanksgiving leftovers are OK, but a fully operational Turkey Deep Fryer is a no-no.)
