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."

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)
Gravy
Jams
Jellies
Maple syrup
Oils and vinegars
Salad dressing
Salsa
Sauces
Soups

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.
