about things. Usually, it’s very weird
things that I wonder about, like “How did cavemen figure out that cooked
meat is more tender, savory, and delicious than raw meat?” There’s not a single animal in the kingdom
that does it besides humans, so the first caveman BBQ king didn’t watch a baboon
lay out a zebra carcass on a pit.
Maybe he dropped his Dinosaur leg into the fire? Anyway, I thank the good Lord every day that he eventually figured it
out. You also have to wonder if he told
the rest of the tribe right away, or if he kept the secret to himself to
impress the ladies. Either way, I bet he
was pretty damn proud of himself until some mentally challenged mouth breathing member of the tribe set the cave on fire…
I had a
similar moment of discovery today on the internet. My schedule brings me to
about how the TSA security force near
and I found a curious blog called appropriately, “My government is retarded!” What I found made me laugh and laugh! This blog pointed me to the official TSA
website and, more specifically, to their blog page called, “The Evolution of Security.”
head around this. The TSA is a joke to
most business travelers, right? We’ve
all seen them wave people through while fiddling with their cell phones, frisk
little old ladies, and strip search children.
Several of you have commented about missing jackets, shampoo, and other
goodies. Just this morning I discovered a
TSA “we’ve been in your luggage again” certificate and that my travel
alarm clock was now missing its crystal and it was set several hours ahead. Well, have they attempted to improve their security practices? NO!
They started a blog to tell you what a wonderful job they’re doing! You have to admire their enthusiasm; they
pounce on your questions and comments like horny puppies on a bench of firm new
pillows. They even implore you to
“be a part” of their evolving effort.
blog went live, they had more than 400 comments in 48 hours. “Wow,” I thought, “What a
popular blog! At the current rate, it
would take me more than 50 years to get those numbers!” Then I read them and thought, “Oh. I guess I haven’t angered quite as many
people as the TSA has, either.”
while I haven’t exactly brought a full buffet of smoked Zebra to the table, I
thought some of you would at least like to see how the TSA justifies their
policy on liquids, or shoes, or why they search old ladies, etc. Check it out!
Bother them! Bring your
questions, concerns, and inquiries to their table! You won’t be sorry…
