    Travelers who attempt to make a joke about strict security procedures at airports have been warned they face arrest.

    A loudspeaker announcement made by the Transport Security Administration warns the public: 'Any inappropriate remarks or jokes concerning security may result in your arrest.'

    Concerned passenger Matt Miller recorded the loudspeaker message while passing through George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston, Texas.

    I used to do that regularly in airports until we quickly flying -- two clicks on each side and they are in the "audiocoil" position, which quite effectively ends all of TSA's squawking messages.

    Going through Denver a few years ago, a TSA screener was doing the usual screaming at everyone about liquids, belts and taking everything out of your pockets.

    "Folks take everything out of your pockets, cell phones, keys, coins, bullets...."

    Yeah, if I said that, I'd be labeled as a big catch.
