    The Problem with the TSA

    I am getting so tired of the airport scanners that we have to go through before getting on a plane. Each time I go through one the TSA agent says "Please step over here, sir". Next, while feeling my upper arms they say, "What makes you think we wouldn't see the guns you are trying to take on this plane!"

    I tried to push the envelope, but found that it was stationery.

    Have you heard about the new corduroy pillows? They're making head lines!

    Unless you were trying to carry guns on a plane, his comment makes no sense.

    I have to say that it happens more when I am in a long sleeved shirt!

    I had something similar happen to me the last time I went to the doctor. I went in for a sore back. After he examined me he said for the next 2 weeks you need to sit down to pee. I said, sit down to pee, are you crazy. He said I don't want you holding anything over 10 pounds.

    Damn. I got it now. Real slow here, I guess.

    Reminds me of the time a friend and I were fishing. We both had to take a leak, so we stood up and proceeded to pee over the side of the boat.

    My friend says, "Damn, the river's cold."

    To which, I replied, "And, it's deep too."

    Sometimes, the older jokes are easier to remember....

    Everything old is new again.

    And if you are old enough to remember that, you must be approaching my age.
