Cupcakes Can Explode

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:

PEABODY, Mass. — A woman who just flew back home from Las Vegas says an airport security officer confiscated her frosted cupcake because he thought the icing on it could be a security risk.

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.

Perhaps you want to read the rest of the story? Here’s the link:

This article inspired me to create a play by play illustration of what went down: ENJOY 🙂

There you have it, the truth.

LOL! 🙂 Thanks for brightening my day, even though it’s now after dark. Thanks for all the “likes” too. 🙂 You are a very funny lady!
