Exploding cupcake?

Ok, I understand the need for security measures after what happened on 9/11. I understand the measures adopted after the shoe bomber and underwear bomber attempts. (boy did the terrorists ever pick a couple of dimwits for that! Thankfully!) And I am so happy I don't travel by air because those check points from what I hear are a royal pain in the ass.

I get all of this, but now, exploding cupcakes? Aren't we getting just a wee bit too paranoid? This woman's cupcake was confiscated by the TSA because it "exceeded the gel recommendation allowed for carry on baggage". (I personally thing it's a case that a TSA agent probably wanted the cupcake for a snack. )

Here's the story anyway:

Confiscated cupcake

I never really thought of frosting as looking "gelatin". I think gelatin, and I think of that jiggly stuff we call jello. Oh..wait, the article says it's "icing" not frosting...but, aren't they one and the same? Or has something about that changed in recent years?

And for some fun with tongue twisting...try to say this one's name fast! Side note: who in the hell hates having kids so much as to give their child a name like this????????

Go ahead..say that name fast 10 times!

It's no wonder he does drugs!

And finally, in Alaska, haven't they told folks that carbon monoxide is odorless? Oh yeah...bad bear! Oh wait, bear didn't do it...oh's the story anyway:

Bear spray clears church

Just some silly stuff to read and get a chuckle out of today. Not all news is bad or depressing. Some of it does make you wonder about the world out there.

The last time I flew it wasn't so bad, but i did fly back and forth between Ohio and Mn, usually getting sent to Atlanta one way or another, and I do remember after 9/11. The national guard walking around with their rifles, standing by each check in. I remember once, the guy started arguing about something he had and before anyone knew it he was down on the floor with a rifle at his head and them putting those plastic straps they use for hand cuffs on him. That was enough to make me nervous. lol

As for the cupcake, yea maybe that was going a bit to far. They made my daughter throw a large tube of toothpaste away because it was too big for their requirements. But in a way I am glad that they are like that, maybe if they had been more secure 9/11 wouldn't have happened. I am just not sure how much explosive would fit in a cupcake.....

Well... I could see it being confiscated- it might not have been a cupcake... it probably was mistaken for one of those big, heavy $16 muffins that were being sold to congressional members on their lunch breaks, that looked really suspicious! You know politicians are full of it- who knows what the muffins were full of!
