Here’s a teaser for you (as always, click on image to enlarge):
It’s so obvious that whoever mans the @AskTSA desk just looks for key words and then responds to those key words — in other words, just like a robot.
A recent tweet, brought to you by the brilliant minds of the TSA:
Agent [email protected]Apr 14
ADVISORY: #TSA RECOGNIZES PASSENGERS WHO MISS FLIGHTS DUE TO SECURITY LINES AS “MAKING HEROIC SACRIFICE FOR FREEDOM.”
There you have it — you’re making a heroic sacrifice for freedom!
Don’t you feel better already?
(Okay, the tweet is technically satirical, but it reads exactly like something the TSA would say. They say stupid shit all the time. Read on.)
This tweet was in response to the fact that thousands of people all over the country are missing their flights because the security lines are so long. But hey, all you have to do is arrive earlier. Then, when you’re all massed together at the checkpoint like sitting ducks, you can feel secure that if a bomb goes off there, the dead won’t be as dead as if it goes off on a plane, because — well, logic!
Keep flying, people. Keep rewarding the airlines and keep putting up with this abuse. After all, what do you have to lose?

Sorry, I don’t have the energy to do a new April Fool’s post today, though we’ve had some good ones in the past — in 2013, here, and in 2014, here.
Instead, you can just enjoy this great graphic designed by TSA News reader Mark Elliot of Better Bike, who used his creativity and a little Photoshop to put it together. Thanks, Mark!
