Outrage: TSA Confiscates Cupcake, Gel-Like Frosting A Security Risk!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A Peabody woman says a cupcake she tried to take on a flight with her sparked a potential security threat this week.Rebecca Hains says she was going through security at the airport in Las Vegas when a TSA agent pulled her aside and said the cupcake frosting was `gel-like` enough to constitute a security risk."



This is a humorous incident, but there`s nothing funny how how the timid American public allows TSA goons to grope and prod them in the name of fighting terrorism. When we have to practically submit to a strip-search for the right to fly, the terrorists have won.

I wouldn`t be surprised if a hungry TSA agent went home that day with a "gel-like substance" on his lips. You can`t make this stuff up, it`s like a Keystone Kops comedy.

Has there ever been a case of a terrorist wearing a cupcake suicide belt, who attacked a hotel or a nightclub. Cupcakes might pose a health risk if you eat too many of them, but only an idiot would consider them a security risk.

Haines contacted the cupcake company, Wicked Good Cupcakes, and sensing an excellent publicity opportunity, they are sending her a batch of free cupcakes.

Hey, I love Wicked Good Cupcakes also!
