• Phoenix New Times
An Arizona State University Ph.D. student says his tee-shirt mocking the Transportation Security Administration led to him and his wife getting kicked off his flight returning to Phoenix over the weekend.
It wasn't the TSA that kicked them off the plane, though -- Arijit Guha tells New Times it was a Delta pilot's decision to keep them off the flight from Buffalo, New York.
While waiting at the gate, Guha says, one of the airline's supervisors told him his shirt made employees and passengers "uncomfortable."
The shirt logo makes a play on the TSA's logo, with the eagle holding untied shoes and pouring out a bottle of liquid. Around the seal, it says, "Bombs ZOMG/ZOMG terrists," and "Gonna kill us all ZOMG ZOMG alert level bloodred run run take off your shoes moisture." ("ZOMG" means "Oh my God," for those curious.)
