This Is No Ordinary Cupcake

This will be short and “sweet.” Like many of you, when I think of a cupcake, I don’t think of it being in a jar. However, the photo below shows the “cupcake” that was prohibited from being taken into the cabin of a plane last month.
I wanted to make it clear that this wasn’t your everyday, run-of-the-mill cupcake. If you’re not familiar with it, we have a policy directly related to the UK liquid bomb plot of 2006 called 3-1-1 that  limits the amount of liquids, gels and aerosols you can bring in your carry-on luggage. Icing falls under the “gel” category.  As you can see from the picture, unlike a thin layer of icing that resides on the top of most cupcakes, this cupcake had a thick layer of icing inside a jar.


Goodbye common sense. You will be missed.

I can't handle the fucking condescending tone that this administration and it's lackey's use to belittle any one that uses common sense.

I heard "Cupcake" was TSA's code, or nickname for kerrcarto when he opts for the junkage pat-down instead of the full screen...
