This brings new meaning to the phrase, "Those politicians are as useless as a bag of moose s***."
A man in Alaska tried to board a plane with a bag of moose poop that he planned on bringing to politicians.
Unfortunately for him the TSA shut him down.
One traveler’s unconventional carry-on at an Alaska airport this month provided a teachable moment for fliers around the country.
“Yes, you can bring moose poop to a checkpoint!” Lisa Farbstein, a spokesperson for the Transportation Security Administration, wrote in a Twitter post on April 23. “And someone did last week at Juneau Int’l Airport.”
Farbstein went on to say that even though the TSA doesn’t have rules keeping travelers from showing up at security checkpoints with animal droppings, she can’t speak for airlines themselves. She advised travelers packing poop to check before flying “because having to leave souvenir poop behind would be crappy.”
TSA wrote in an Instagram post that “several carriers do have rules in place to avoid smelly situations aboard their planes.”
According to the TSA, the man’s carry-on was flagged at Juneau International Airport on April 15 because equipment caught “a large organic mass” in the luggage, which could have been a sign of explosive material, the KTOO reports.
That’s when officers looked inside and discovered the bag of feces — and when the man told them “that he collects this and likes to present it, ‘For politicians and their bleep policies,’” Farbstein said, according to KTOO.
