The Lunatics Have Left The Asylum in Charge of the Morons…

OK, I think most people can accept that high levels of security are necessary at airports, and can even accept some of the more absurd restrictions on what can be taken on board planes[1]. But this looks like a level of “security” too far. A traveller was told he couldn’t board a plane because of his t-shirt. Did it have some offensive slogan? Did it encourage support for terrorists? Errr, no. It had a cartoon robot on it:

The Edge Of Madness – No t-shirt, no flight

How the flying wossnames can such a garment be construed as a threat, or even slightly disturbing? Does this make any sense at all? Have the people responsible for security really detached their brains in favour of a bizarre interpretation of badly-written regulations?

I’d love to believe that this isn’t true, but the writer apparently has lots of witnesses…

[1] Though if all those bottles of liquid are really potentially dangerous, shouldn’t they be handling them carefully?
