As if the screening at JFK wasn't slow enough already...

Many years ago I had a job hosing out UPS trucks at the end of the shift. I had no idea the drivers carried pepper spray until the pressure washer hit the can of it in the back. I also had no idea that the cans would explode when pressure washed. Reminded me of that time I got tear gassed.

He probably saw some suspicious air molecules...
and he needed to assert some "autority"....

Brainiacs who protect our country.

Hmph, I bet they were taking naps and someone drew penises on their faces and they tried to use the pepper spray to wash it off.

Inspector Clouseau?

Ha! Well fortunately no innocent people got hurt.

Why wasn't it in a one quart zip lock bag?

Why do they write like that? I mean, "bumbling TSA agent" is like "bright sunshine" or "cold ice" - it's unnecessarily wordy. Brevity. Efficiency.

"TSA agent issued pepper spray. Six sent to hospital."

Short, to the point, and you know exactly what happened before reading it.
