The TSA did not stop at opening Christmas presents at airport checkpoints this holiday season. In two separate incidents agents decreed that tasty Christmas treats constituted a security threat, while in another incident a man simply strolled through carrying a sword.
A Massachusetts woman ran into trouble with agents at Las Vegas- McCarran International Airport on Christmas Eve when they discovered a frosted cupcake in her luggage.
According to ABC News, the agent was confused about what to do with the potential offensive weapon and so called in a supervisor who declared that the vanilla-bourbon icing could be a “security risk” as it constituted a “gel like substance”.
Worse still, the woman, Rebecca Hains, had no trouble with the cupcake on an earlier flight.
