This is not the kind of stuffing you normally see in November. I’m pretty sure about that.
The TSA tweeted out pictures after a woman flying from Fort Lauderdale to Haiti who got caught at the airport trying to smuggle a GUN through security by stuffing it inside an uncooked chicken.
They haven’t released x-rays of it, which are probably hilarious. They were nice enough to post four shots of the gun being removed from the bird on social media.
The TSA had some fun with the wording in their post. They called it a “personal FOWL”, spelled F-O-W-L…said it was a huge “BASTE of time”…and told other people not to “WING it” when traveling with firearms. Their puns were on point.
The woman obviously didn’t make her flight. They brought in Customs and Border Protection to deal with her, so it sounds like she’ll be facing charges.
Being caught with a gun by the TSA also comes with a $1,500 fine, or $3,000 if it was loaded. For repeat offenders, it’s up to $14,000.
To be clear, you are allowed to bring a whole, uncooked chicken or turkey in your carry-on. So if you want to haul one across the country for Thanksgiving, go for it. Just don’t hide any firearms inside.
