The Underwear Bomb

Wow, talk about getting your panties in a knot. That my dear readers is the ‘bomb’ that sought to take down a commercial airliner. What concerns me most was that the explosives were sewn into the crotch of the underwear. Now, I don’t want to be rude or anything but is this some sort of macho muslim metaphor or what?

If security logic follows then we may have to offer up our tidy whities when going through airport security later this year. I mean Richard Reid brought us the shoe bomb and now we have offer up our shoes and that was what? – six years ago? So, I’m thinking maybe we all just ought to go commando while flying the friendly skies and shorten the security lines.Β  πŸ˜‰

  1. Once you get past the ewww factor, it makes sense, if you’ve watched those demos of the body scanning machines. Bashful? They give you a piece of metal or something to hide your crotch from the camera. Sneaky lil terrorist bastids know that.

    But OMG, I squirmed in my seat when I saw these pictures!

    Hey Girl,
    Leave it to you to know why the bomb was in his crotch. LOL. Apparently it’s the uninformed innocent public that doesn’t know these things, eh?

    Squirm is right isn’t it? I guess he didn’t think about what might happen if he failed. Although, he doesn’t get his virgins until he gets to heaven so I maybe it doesn’t matter, right? What a world.



  2. Hi Annie! A funny twist to a very serious problem. And a word of caution about going commando: It only leaves one other option for the would-be terrorist to stash his goods, which means body cavity searches for the rest of us when we board the aircraft. πŸ˜‰

    Hey JOS –
    Oh Lord…you had to bring that image up. πŸ˜† Face it, no matter what happens, the normal flying public is screwed, eh? Happy Freeking New Year. πŸ˜‰


  3. Ok now jussaaaa miiiinute….I’m going to Ixtapa, MX in February and I’m not flying commando. AND? I’m thinking security is going to be a nightmare (which is FINE if they do it to someone armed and dangerous, but me? I’m a simple girl from IA who just wants to keep her panties ON. πŸ™‚

    Happy new year!!!

    Hey Dar!
    Happy New Year, girl! Going to Mexico but don’t want to go commando. Hmmmm…maybe that is a wise choice after all. πŸ˜† Good to see you.
