I’ve seen my share of people trying to carry crazy items on an airplane. The two weirdest (one of them just being flat out gross) things that I ever saw being carried through security and on an airplane were equally odd. I once saw a guy carrying a trophy that was about 6 feet tall. I kid you not. I have no idea how he stowed it. It’s difficult not to notice the dude with the 6 foot trophy.

The second odd item was actually fingernails that were still attached to the lady. Do you know what I mean? These things were the size of an NBA regulation sized basketball. I can not imagine having to sit next to that for a 4 hour flight!

But have you seen the Echo TSA Chainsaw TV Commercial yet?

I guess this has been out since the first of the year, but I just happened to catch it the other night. Since I used to go through a lot of awkward moments at some of our countries finest airports, I found it quite humorous that he’s carrying on a chainsaw. I always got nervous when having to carry a projector through security.

I do like Echo’s description of the video on youtube. It contains this disclaimer:

Disclaimer: Taking a chainsaw, especially if it is running, into an airport is not advisable. Check with your airline before beginning to hope you can hold your chainsaw close as a carry-on in flight.

Ha!

What is the oddest thing you ever saw go through airport security?
