    You don’t need to refridgerize peanut butter.

    You do if it’s natural peanut butter, Puttgrass.

    It appears that many might pay to use the radio-groper.

    TSA, keeping us safe, one absurdity after another.

    You could market that pelvic radio-groper if you could get it to work with instant messaging.

    What is the man in the last panel hiding behind his back? Peanut butter? Mixed-berry jelly?

    Nice… tip of the hat for spotting the “Caine Mutiny” parallels in the whole TSA debacle…

    Shouldn’t they have employed the peanut/jelly sniffing dogs first? Oh wait, I forgot… TSA. Sorry, I was thinking straight.

    Since people complain about the security just drop it. When an airplane gets blown out of the sky people will not think the security is so bad.

    Unfortunately, there is no other way to make things secure. How do you think antivirus software gets developed? One virus at a time.

    That’s not right Smoky, not only is it not right when it comes to antivirus software, but it is also not right about security in general.

    Well done on this comic.

    So TSA needs to keep explosives off the Airplane.

    Passengers are quite capable of taking care of the “rest” themselves.

    One job I wouldn’t like to have is an air marshal/ When the guy stands up, I FOR ONE would jump his sorry A$$ (since he’s NOT identified, he’s just another trouble maker.) Of course, with armored flight decks (as was alluded to in the first panels), it becomes a fool’s errand to try to do anything on the aircraft - they will take the perp into custody when the plane lands.

    The point of the cartoon is that TSA is ALWAYS acting in the PAST (well, DUH!) Oh, and smokey - anti-virus is actually developed as a response to both a threat and a “pattern”. the heuristic analyses make it a lot easier to determine “copycat” viri. (gotta love micro$haft spell checker - doesn’t recognize Latin plurals)

    TSA is the equivalent of peeing yourself while wearing a dark suit - you get a warm feeling and nobody notices.
