Outrage: TSA Goon Confiscates Passenger's Jar Of Jam

By Robert Paul Reyes

"As a frequent traveler in and out of Denver International Airport, Kathleen Triou considers herself well-versed in the requirements of what items she can take through security.

But she was confounded Dec. 15 when a Transportation Security Administration agent had her in a jam over, well, raspberry jam."


Kurtis Lee/The Denver Post

These are some of the food items you can`t take with you onboard a plane:

Cranberry sauce
Creamy dips and spreads (cheeses, peanut butter, etc.)
Gift baskets with food items (salsa, jams and salad dressings)
Maple syrup
Oils and vinegars
Salad dressing

I guess the TSA doesn`t want a food fight to break out 35,000 miles in the air. Or an orgy for that matter, some of those food items are essential for a s[e]x party.

I can imagine a team of terrorists attacking an American airport spraying innocent passengers with oil and vinegar, and tossing cranberry sauce grenades.

You will probably be able to sneak a sawed-off shotgun onboard a plane, just don`t pack any jam in your suitcase, or you will find yourself in a real jam.

With the clueless TSA agents the first line of defense in our airports, it`s a miracle terrorists haven`t attacked our airports.
