Those bastards! Now it’s not safe to fly with cheese!
“The seizures at airports in San Diego, Milwaukee, Houston and Baltimore included “wires, switches, pipes or tubes, cell phone components and dense clay-like substances,” including block cheese….The bulletin said block cheese has a consistency similar to some explosives.”
Now, as someone who frequently is a messy packer, and additionally a cheap bastard, I frequently find myself flying with a mixture of cheese, crackers, Ethernet cords, and power cords all tangled up in my suitcase, along with an occasional battery charger. If I am picked up on my way to the Entomological Society Meeting in December, I will definitely let you all know. In fact, I think I’m going to bring EXTRA cheese, just to mess with them.
If I end up on the Homeland Security Cheese Watchlist, so be it. (Please note this is a separate threat from the Pizza Cheese plots reported earlier.)
The amazing part is this:
“There is no credible, specific threat here,” TSA spokeswoman Ellen Howe said Tuesday.”
Gosh, you think maybe they are trying to distract the public from some of the other things going on in the news right now? Maybe?
