Reports are abound lately of apparently bad behavior (seemingly) at the behest of the TSA which has us groaning that the bitches have gone too far, but perversely thrilled that they are really going out of their way to make sure no crazy nut with a sledge hammer up his bum doesn’t make it on board our sacred flight. That is of course until it comes time to our own very special dehumanizing pat down and delicious affair with TSA handlers who have the savoire faire that of a starving Labrador.
That said, we decided to do a round up of something the latest faux pas and adventures (frankly when don’t we?) in the new department of scandal, human dignity, world security and the good old begrudged American mantra- ” I would never want to get on a plane with a terrorist plan ready to go, but that said, I don’t want you invading that thing called my privacy, and of course my dignity.”

How did this go you wonder? Not very well it seems…
Sam Wolanyk was planning to fly to Barbados but declined to go through the full-body scanner, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported.
His refusal meant he was singled out for a pat-down search instead.
Mr Wolanyk allegedly decided to strip down to his underwear instead, his lawyer Jason Davis of Orange Country said.
“It was obvious that my underwear left nothing to the imagination,” Mr Wolanyk said.
“I was not willing to be molested again.
