Even sock puppets aren't allowed past airport security with weapons. According to Seattle's King 5 News, TSA agents in St. Louis recently confiscated a toy pistol attached to a "Rooster Monkburn" sock puppet monkey. The puppet is a parody of the John Wayne character Rooster Cogburn from the film "True Grit" and carries a holstered miniature six-shooter. Phyllis May, who was carrying the puppet, says she was "appalled and shocked and embarrassed all at the same time." May claims the TSA agent who located the prop told her that if the gun was held up to someone's neck they "wouldn't know if it was real or not." Meantime, the TSA issued a statement saying they confiscate all replicas of firearms out of an "abundance of caution."
No that's an abundance of goofyness!
A Texas man is in all sorts of trouble for allegedly using a sword to steal a half a dozen tacos. KSAT TV reports that Adam Kramer is accused of walking into a San Antonio Mexican restaurant and demanding six tacos. The waitress there at the time says the 28-year-old pulled out a sword from his waistband when she told him he had to pay for them. She also says Kramer yelled that someone was going to die if he didn’t get the free tacos. He was arrested the next day and officials filed formal charges against him last Friday.
