The Metal bill of Rights is the best thing EVER. I will agree with Penn when he said Dino is a genius. I bought one after attending the show. As a fellow confrontational (nice way of saying ass) Libertarian, how could I resist? But I admit I got a bit chicken so I tossed it in the check-in luggage and promptly forgot about it. Well the trip was part road trip and so me and the wife took a nice road trip down to Scottsdale Arizona in a rental car to visit friends and family. So we had a nice long car trips there and back. Periodically to stop to take in sights in the triple digit weather. (This is a important fact to remember.)
On our flight back home from McCarran Airport we got the full molestation procedure by TSA. Could be because we were complaining really loud about how this is crap is my guess. I got the pr0n scanner and was asked what deadly instrument of doom was hidden in my back pocket. My wallet... clearly a dooms day device.
My wife had the extra pleasure of she forgot to unpack the water bottles we tucked in her backpack we used on our road trip. HIDEOUS WATER OF DOOOOM! They did miss the fact that she was also collecting souvenir lighters from every town along the way and she had 5 lighters in the same back pack. Two of those lighters could be strapped on to a wing and be used as a jet turbine. Wow i'm feeling safe now! But at least TSA caught the water and wallet. So after being searched and prodded we continue home. Totally forgetting the check-in luggage. Till we get home and found our little slip of paper from TSA that basically says we dug through your stuff. At which point we laughed hysterically. Seems our check-in looked suspicious. Could be because we had 3 jars of BBQ sauce given to me by my friend. a souvenir $5 slot machine token we got at Friz. Pewter shot glass we got from Hoover Dam. A 3DS Nintendo game I tossed in there because wouldn't have time to play on the flight. 4 more lighters. A Digital camera. The wife had a curling iron and a makeup case made of solid metal. The best of all... the Metal Bill of Rights we got at the Penn and Teller show that got shuffled into the bag of our dirty socks and underwear we wore on our long hot road trip to Arizona and back. Could have been intentional or accident... I won't say.
We ended up losing our digital camera after their intrusion but it's almost worth it knowing the same poor bastard who lost our camera had to fish out the Metal Bill of Rights from that bag of sweaty drawers.
If Penn and Teller ever gets any of these message forum posts... I just wanted to thank them for the evil fun I had on TSA thanks to the Metal Bill of Rights.
