(A Filthy Lie)
Here's a little story from my Navy days. Being stationed on the east coast and having parents on the west, I had to fly a lot. I normally took my leave around the holidays so that I could be with my family for Christmas. The airports are usually packed during these times and so I always made sure I brought my patience.
Once I had a stop at Washington National Airport. Just a little hour layover and I'd be back on my way. While I was headed to the gate to catch my next leg, I was walking past the New York Air desk and witnessed a mob of people rushing the counter. I was curious to see what all of the confusion was about, so I stepped in for a closer look.
"We want to carry on our blenders!", screamed one lady.
"Can't we bring on our penguin porn?", yelled some other guy.
I wasn't sure what it all meant. Now that I look back, I remember seeing some guy in a tacky suit snickering while he stood back and watched.
You can guess who that man was.
