In 2018, TSA screeners discovered a record number of weapons in passenger carrier bags from airlines.

Are you guilty when TSA screeners pull out the bottle of water or the Costco size lotion you forgot was in your carrying case?

It can get worse. Your forbidden item can be immortalized in TSA's annual list of this year's most unusual findings. This is separated from its roundup of routine catches such as weapons (loaded and unloaded), which were found in record numbers last year.

This year's top 10, highlighted in a TSA video released on Monday, features a Barbados-bound ball python wrapped in nylon pantyhose and filled into a hard drive, a shaving shoe suitable for Freddie Kreuger and more.

We know it didn't go down this way but we would like to imagine that the groom lobbed these inert well-dressed grenades over the shoulder of the grooms, just as bouquets are thrown to bridesmaids. We could see a conversation that went like this. … Chad: "I was so close to catching one, bruh." … Randy: "Anyway, Chad! Just close the horseshoes and hand grenades. Oh wait …" … Randy & Chad: "Hahahahaha! Bruh …" … OK, back to the real world. These brave inert grenades were wedding gifts for the groomsmen. They were discovered in a checked bag at Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR). … When our officers discover a potentially explosive on the screen, they can't just open the bag and have a look to find out if it's real or not. A TSA explosion specialist or a police bomb club must respond before the bag has ever opened. This can lead to costly evacuations, delays and missed flights. These types of items can also lead to major fines and arrests. Contact your preferred sender about your options because they cannot travel via commercial aircraft. So even if they are not real, they can cause a lot of headache.

Creators of smoking & # 39; & # 39; The grenade & # 39 ;, a bottle opener peddled as a groomsmen gift, did not become ashamed of being on the list and made it a marketing opportunity on Twitter.

Tucson, Arizona-based Bottle Breacher warns buyers of $ 39.99 Tuxedo Freedom Frag to not take them to the airport. Inert or not, grenades are not allowed in carry-on or checked bags because potential explosives must be automatically screened by an explosive specialist or a police bomber squad before the bag is opened, TSA says.
