OUCH! Nipple rings cause airport security issue

From today's MSNBC headlines: "Nipple rings cause airport security issue." Here I thought Rex's knee replacement was a problem at the security gate.

OUCH! A Texas woman who said she was forced to remove a nipple ring with pliers in order to board an airplane called for an apology by federal security agents and a civil rights investigation. Now, I have to admit that I don't have intimate experience with this topic, but I do have pierced ears and pliers wouldn't seem necessary....

"The conduct of TSA was cruel and unnecessary," Piercing Lady wrote. "The last time that I checked a nipple was not a dangerous weapon." Roxiticus Desperate Husbands (and Madonna) beg to differ....

It depends on the nipple. Remember Janet Jackson's Nipple of Mass Destruction? Just a flash of that thing almost brought down entire media networks.

I think we should have government agencies to sniff out piercings in all public spaces. For our own protection, of course.

I'm gonna need to put this on my blog, too.

Erik,
Of course, that will lead to the formation of another group that will protest the government's Piercing Protection Agency who will have bumper stickers (and maybe little badges on their blogs and over their hearts or in that vicinity) that say "I'm a member of the NPA and I vote!"
