That’s right cupcakes are deadly, volatile weaponry. So…I was reading through Snopes.com daily news. It’s a favorite of mine. It’s full of odd news from across the country. I stumbled upon the article below. Basically, TSA airport security, once again, seem kind of…ridiculous? I provided a small excerpt from the article:

Rebecca Hains said the Transportation Security Administration agent at McCarran International Airport took her cupcake Wednesday, telling her its frosting was enough like a gel to violate TSA restrictions on allowing liquids and gels onto flights to prevent them from being used as explosives.
