Default New Fashion Statement "Grenades are in this Year!"

I couldn't believe when I read this on an online cruise newsetter.

"Cruiselines testing their security....

The involved a passenger who packed a belt buckle resembling a grenade for a Carnival Sensation cruise departing from Tampa.

After screeners spotted the grenade in his bag, the terminal was evacuated and the bomb squad brought in to examine the suitcase, a Carnival spokeswoman said.

After it was determined the item was actually clothing, the line did allow the owner of the grenade-like belt buckle to board the Sensation. The buckle, however, stayed behind with the authorities.

The ship departed "slightly late" for its four-day cruise."

And I worry about my nail clipper being confiscated. Yikes.

"What were you thinking?!" Excellent question if you ask me!

For example, our local Portland Trail Blazer, Damon Stoudamire, was arrested recently for (allegedly.......) attempting to smuggle a pound of pot through a metal detector at the Tucson, AZ airport wrapped in -- are you ready for this? -- aluminum foil.

So let's see. Let's attempt to smuggle an illegal drug through a metal detector. And hey -- let's wrap it in, umm, metal............

Amazing isn't it......?
