Actually preventing the interstate transportation of fruitcake might be the most useful thing the TSA has ever accomplished.

fark you, TSA!

hide your bomb in a dollar store fruit cake that costs $3. no one will touch it.

TSA will get their unjust desserts.

When exactly do we plan on declaring war on this terrorist group?

Politicians: End this TSA madness, NOW. You have enough critical thinking skills to realize this security theater is more than useless...you will be considered heroes to the public if you rid us of this scourge rather than the spineless money-grubbers that you are.

Oh. You might as well try to outlaw gravity and stupidity, too. Pols just love their money and their wealthy peers WAY to much to actually do good.

The cake is a lie.

Wait, this is news? I thought we'd gotten used to the TSA looking at women's pies.

fine toothed fork
Shouldn't that be "fine-tined fork"?

Can't have us sneaking a useful tool out of this jail.

And, as with all of the "potentially dangerous" liquids, the "potentially dangerous" pies and cakes will be thrown together into one large bin next to the security station, where they could never cause a problem if they were actually dangerous.

Yes, but your cunning plan won't work. A fruitcake is so dense that the explosion cannot escape.

The screening ought only consist of stopping people with pecan pies and asking, "What do you have there?" Anyone that answers, "Pee-can pie," ought to be stopped, stripped, and given a thorough body-cavity search--and then another just to be sure.

I'm sorry, is cherry pie a matter of national security?

Also, your panties. The TSA needs to sniff your panties, for official purposes, of course.
