Flash! TSA bans bread!
Following the explosions in two BC sawmills, which experts are speculating may have been caused by fine sawdust caused by excessively dry wood, the TSA has banned any particulate materials, such as sawdust, flour, and icing sugar, to be banned from all flights.
Also included in the ban are any objects made from particulate materials, such as particleboard, bread, and icing sugar dusted donuts. (The union representing TSA workers had argued, unsuccessfully, against this last item.) The TSA’s Director Of Really Dangerous Stuff also noted that materials with larger particle sizes, such as table salt and sand, were also being included in the ban.
At press time, we were still awaiting word on whether computer equipment was to be included in the ban, since silicon chips are commonly said to be made of sand.
(Yeah, yeah, I know, don’t give the TSA ideas …)
