Arrested at the airport!

I was arrested at the airport this morning, I was going on a trip to Toronto to give a class on applied geometry to some medical device researchers. Seems I had forgotten my drawing compass in my shirt pocket and it immediately set off the metal detector as I passed through, because of it's sharp tip I was tackled by three burley security guards and held to the ground while they carefully removed the "weapon" from my person.

I am being charged with carrying a concealed "Weapon of math instruction".

Anyone know a good lawyer?

I flew to Calgary many years ago B4 the terror stuff for an industry class. The Mounties pulled me aside at the airport and grilled me for 45 minutes! I guess I must have fit some profile they were watching for. So Chuck, we are soul-mates when it comes to being abused by Canuck airport authorities!!

Oh, and how did you answer the all important question, "Is that your luggage?"

lol, whatever dude, they knew your plan. You were going to break past the flght attendants, make your way to the cabin and draw a perfect circle on the pilot's head. Thank god for airport security!

Lol, I heard this joke once from a comedian, forgot which one. He was pissed because he was getting held up in airport securty behind an old lady in a wheel-chair.

"Oh comon, lets go!" He shouts.
" Sir, we have to treat all security issues the same nowadays. Its for everybody's safety." replied the airport security, 'dowhatyou'retoldorelse' guy.
"I can tell you right now she's not a security threat." the comedian replies

"oh really, and how's that??!" retorts the annoyed security deuchebag

" because the diaper is on her *****, not on her head man!"

HA HA HA HA


ok, that was bad-

Bad, yes killer....but funny as well.

Chuck...that really blows what happened...sometimes security is a little TOO extreme...but, it is also funny. I am glad that security is what it is though, I don't want another instant replay of 9/11.

Ah, I knew it. You wouldn't have been tackled by three security guards while the drawing compass was still in your pocket.

I have a Dixie Chopper mower. It is a weapon of grass destruction. Seriously a bad-a** mower.
