TSA Twitter Account Finds Jokes In Travelers’ Junk


Maybe you’ve heard about the touching of the junk? A new Twitter account,@tsagov,(Bio:“We pat your groin. We see you naked. We’re the doormen to the sky. Why? Because everybody is a terrorist.”) launched on — and has already cleared 5,000 followers.

The site, which lists its location as “London/France/Your Underpants” has found the funny in those invasive groin pats:

And kids, it’s not just junk-touching that’s really, really funny when you think about it–those backscatter scanners are a comedy goldmine, as it turns out:

Another failure by the federal government.

Hire a bunch of halfwits, most of whom would not be qualified to walk a beat a the local mall, yet they are given carte blanche to treat paying passengers however they wish, based on a government badge on their shirt.

The former head of Homeland Security leaves that position, goes to work for a company selling full-body scanners, and suddenly the feds start mandating that these be stuck in airports across the country.

Good for any airport that kicks the TSA to the curb. The only good ending will be when the last airport caves & follows suit.

The airlines should be responsible for their own security. They have the largest interest in keeping their passengers safe & happy, thus would be financially motivated to do the most secure job of screening their customers, while not treating them like animals.
