The bearded politician had to rush through the airport - axe in hand - to check it in as sports equipment and pay an additional €35 to get it on board.

I'm sure that didn't alarm anyone.

that's no way to talk about his wife!

"It was not even his own, he added hastily."

So... someone gave him his weapon? If only there were words to describe this transaction...

DAMNIT. I wanted to make the careful comment...

+1 anyway.

Damnit Eugene, we've been over this before...

Of course, it's company policy never to imply ownership in the event of an axe. We have to use the indefinite article, "an axe", never ... your axe.

Dead for Tax Reasons: that's no way to talk about his wife!


Fun Fact: On the set of The Getaway, Steve McQueen described Ali MacGraw's ass was like a huge flat battle axe. I wonder if he tried to get some, but was denied.

So who do I ax about the right way to bring a medieval weapon on board?

Scrolling down a bit to the "beach bums" article provides a nice, but probably mildly NSFW view.

"It was not a real axe, rather it was for a live role-playing game and improvisational theatre," he said later.

None of you Farkers can ever come up with that line. Ever.

Fake axe denied by fake security. It's all good.

Personally, I put a the fake axe in the same category as a musical instrument. They allow guitar's as carrion, right?

certainly.

as my cousin (who is swedish but lives on the french riveria) once said: many people come to the nude beach expecting to see great melons... unfortunately, all they will find are the sun-dried tomatoes.

Here, take this other axe. It doesn't contain more than one ounce of oil. Have a nice day....

After checking his passport, the customs officer asked him, "Occupation?"

The German said, "Nein! I am only staying for a few days."
