Caption Contest: TSA Version

Pelsmin sends this photo.  Suggests it would be a good caption contest, and then tells the story.  He's right!  So, please do submit your favorite caption, in comments:

Please do click for a more intrusive image....  And then, the story.  As Pelsmin tells it:

I loaned my wife my old Hartmann bag for a trip to her High School Reunion.  I repeatedly assured her that I had carried the bag onto hundreds of flights over the years, although I always limited myself to three days clothing including one pair of shoes.  For her, three days meant three days times three outfits a day, and that meant at least 8 pairs of shoes.  Long story short, she ran into a jam long before the overhead bin came into play.

As Hamlet put it, or would have, if he had seen this...

Heaven and earth,
Must I remember? Why, she would pack more shoes
As if increase of appetite had grown
By what it fed on, and yet, within a weekend—
She hardly wore any of them!—Overpacking, thy name is woman!—

Someone's not being safe...

Hey, the sign says "Do not REACH into the Xray," it doesn't say "Do not CLIMB into Xray." They had to send the smallest agent in to pry the bag loose.

"I guess that's one way to avoid the naked body scanner"

Don't worry he is a trained TSA agent.

"Sir, please take your shoes OFF before you put them on the belt"

Trust us -- it's safe. In fact, it emits less radiation than you'll receive in half an hour on your flight.
