HOUSTON – It’s amazing what people try to bring through their baggage or on their person via airports.
Gun in a turkey? Check. Dagger in a hairbrush? Check. Knife shaped like a gun? Check.
Yes, all that and more in this gathering of tweets from the ever-entertaining Twitter account from your Transportation Security Administration within 2022.
So , without further ado, here are some of the interesting things people tried to bring through the nation’s airports.
This hairy situation led to a brush dagger discovery in security. Whether you’re traveling with cousin Itt or not, daggers are not allowed in a carry-on bag.

We’re not kitten, someone really brought this to the airport. If your cat keychain doubles as a self defense weapon, please make sure it’s not in your carry-on bag before you get to the security checkpoint.

. @TSA removed these 3 electric cattle prods from a man’s luggage guitar case at @Dulles_Airport yesterday. (He was permitted to repack them into a checked handbag. ) Sometimes people get the feeling that they are being herded through airports, but this is certainly no solution! pic. twitter. com/GiDLCmD0d3

A traveler left his prosthetic leg at a @TSA checkpoint at @Reagan_Airport recently. (Yes, I’m completely serious. ) He contacted TSA Lost & Found and it was returned. Turns out he’s a salesman of these devices and left it behind when he was running late for his flight. pic. tweets. com/KkbPK2vvYi

Here’s the flashback to when somebody found an unique way to catch some sleep @flySEA . Hammocks are good to go in any bag. However , it’s best to check with the local airport terminal authority before hanging your suspended sleeping bag. Questions? @AskTSA has your answers! #HammockDay pic. twitter. com/G5u6FRxWjO

What can slow down the security process for you and others? Leaving a real or replica grenade in your bag! These items are always treated like the real thing until proven otherwise. Don’t be like this passenger @SyracuseAirport . Leave these items at home. Queries? @AskTSA ! pic. twitter. com/TerDwiB6fk

Blade try 🤦♀️!
Most of these #weapons are sharp, the decision to pack them in a carry-on was dull! This traveler gave our officers @Reagan_Airport 23 reminders of why they come to work. All knives, blades, and brass knuckles must be packed in checked bags.

Headed to the Kentucky Derby? The final straw will be it’s best to not wear this particular through protection. Place it in your carry-on handbag instead. Have questions but feeling a little horse? Our #AskTSA team is only a message away. They’re available through 8am-6pm EDT, 7 days a week. pic. twitter. com/jlh25MRgae

SPOILER ALERT: A gallon of milk is usually udder-ly too big to go within your carry-on. Don’t skim over this info! Beverages plus #liquid products, like your cow juice, must be in containers 3. 4 oz or even less. Only 1% sure if something can fly? Don’t have a cow and reach out to our own friends @AskTSA . photo. twitter. com/rrON5Q9Lin

This isn’t the wurst bag we’ve ever seen. We aren’t feeding you bologna here when we say solid foods are good to go in both carry on and examined bags. Doesn’t matter how you stuff it in there either. Processing more questions? Avoid the meat sweats! @AskTSA here on Tweets. pic. tweets. com/SQCxnZBUka

Traveling with your self-defense weapons? Make sure to pack items such as stun guns, pepper spray plus nun-chuks inside your checked bags. More questions on these products? Our @AskTSA team won’t take offense! Find them on Twitter from 8 the. m. – 6 p. m. (ET) every day. #ProhibitedItemsWeek pic. twitter. com/w2XFKut1XC

The #replica of a grenade or any explosive device doesn’t belong at an airport. These items aren’t permitted inside carry-on or checked hand bags. Don’t be like this passenger @LGAAirport ! Leave items like this at home. Need more tips on what can or even can’t go? Contact the @AskTSA team! pic. tweets. com/GCy7sENFQi

Allow us in order to pepper out the rules once again on traveling with realistic replica weapons. If you don’t want us to get jalapeño business, it’s best to leave these things at home or in your car. The car might get a liiiiitttle spicy though if hot sauce does freeze.
