I know that airport security is no laughing matter, and I know that inserting things in your arse can be dangerous. Nevertheless, I cannot stop giggling.
It was not the headline that made me laugh out loud, although clearly it captured my attention:
LAX passenger hides objects in his body; bomb squad called
The bit that has truly brightened my day is this:
“Al-Maliki, a former security guard, told screeners that he knew what had triggered the alarm and proceeded to remove items from his rectum, including a rock, chewing gum and thin wire filament.”
You just can’t make this stuff up.
