pueblonative: It's almost as if you have to consult customs laws when you travel abroad.
symptomoftheuniverse: The TSA grabbed my skin flute once, but they let me keep it.
uncleacid: That blows.
Chevello: uncleacid: That blows.You ain't just whistlin' Dixie
oldernell: That's why they're called WOODwinds.I wonder what they would do about bagpipes.
ChewbaccaJones: I read "flautist" and instantly pictured a guy that eats flautas for a living.Now I'm craving flautas.Thanks a farking heap, subby.
Mrbogey: Sorry folks. It's the law of the land. Nothing can be done.
pyrotek85: Hurray for zero tolerance.He claimed to have traveled with them many times. And really, who would think musical instruments would be grouped together with agricultural products?
K3rmy: oldernell: That's why they're called WOODwinds.I wonder what they would do about bagpipes.You realize a saxophone is a woodwind instrument, right?next thing you will saying that all black people look the same
The Pope of Manwich Village: This is not a very poplar law.
big pig peaches: There has to be more to this story. They don't routinely go around destroying everything made of wood.Maybe this story was originally from the Onion or something.
g4lt: FTFA "The ney flute could be made from bamboo, is that agricultural?". Actually, yes http://www.popularmechanics.com/home/improvement/lawn-garden/4323342 . The thing is, right then and there the reader should realize that there's more to this story than meets the eye (that, and the story is actually a press release from the alleged victim, no axe to grind there, amirite?). First, misrepresenting bamboo as non-agricultural raises a BIG flag: dude doesn't even know about the woods he's allegedly using, which brings us to the second part: he said they COULD be made of bamboo, not that they were, sounds a LOT like a CYA. There are a lot of woods that WILL get destroyed at the border, regardless of what it's been carved into, by Customs, most of which are because the wood in question is either an endangered species or the wood is harvested in a horribly unsustainable method, like clearcutting rainforests

Rigger1955: The Pope of Manwich Village: This is not a very poplar law.Not much point birching about it, though.
r1niceboy: RussianPooper: pueblonative: It's almost as if you have to consult customs laws when you travel abroad.Only 4 posts to get to the asshole apologist.If there's one thing about natives of pueblos, they certainly know how to be submissive to the point of Ned Beatty.

So is a clarinet, silver flute, oboe etc. They are called woodwinds because originally they were made of wood. The exception is the sax but it is included because it has a reed.
