    Will the TSA ever stop being such a goddamn pain in the neck? Yeah — there are issues of national security here and no one should be able to walk onto a plane carrying whatever they please, but, honestly, the Transportation Security Administration spends more time making passengers take off their shoes and confiscating human skulls out of people's bags than they do stopping actual flight risks. Is a country where two ladies can't pass through airport security with a couple of noggins in their purses really a country you want to call home? If you live in the U.S., then it already is.

    Two women en route to Baltimore via Ft. Lauderdale were recently stopped by airport officials when screeners detected what looked like human skull fragments and teeth inside of their luggage. According to the Broward Sheriff’s Office, TSA agents then discovered that yes, those really were pieces of skull that had been hidden inside wrapped ceramic pottery filled with rocks and dirt.

    Well, I guess I've brought my last tapir skull back from South America.

    They're afraid some of the skulls might do better than them on securing airports.
