And I hear I was expecting a Flava Flav joke.

That sort of stunt isn't so funny. This "artist" has made himself as perfect a fit for shoebomber as he can without actually wearing a bomb. His purpose? To make necessary and prudent precautions seem ridiculous.

He thinks it's a joke. But shoe bombs are not a joke.

And you know this is a stunt how?

Well, I guess this demonstrates that not only Muslims are being targeted for wearing funny shoes, which is quite positive, really.

@ Lost lake hiker.
I agree with you!
Twenty years ago a very diligent El Al inspector prevented the loss of an El Al
passenger jet and the loss of more than 300 victims of a terror bombing.

Yes this event was a joke; but the suspicion of the security officers should not be questioned.

Maybe Fox kinda skipped over some details... The following gives me the impression the man knew exactly what he was doing.

Geoffrey McGann, 49, was caught with the device and even stranger items in his luggage Thursday evening, TSA agents said.

The "elaborate watch" was buried beneath McGann's coat in a luggage inspection area, and it had been attached to wires, a toggle switch, fuses and a circuit board, TSA agents said.

In addition, McGann's boots were two sizes too big and were stuffed with layers of homemade insoles, which allowed for large cavities where someone would be able to hide items, Alameda County sheriff's Sgt. J.D. Nelson told the San Jose Mercury-News.

McGann was also wearing a military-style shirt with a built-in tourniquet in the sleeves, often used by soldiers to stop bleeding if they suffer an arm injury, the sergeant said.

Uh, yeah, that's gonna raise some questions.

You can buy a shirt like this on Amazon.

True, that's legal. But if you put it together with the rest of the evidence it becomes very suspicious, as having tourniquets on both arms ready to be tied is a tactic used some Islamists, notably by Chechen snipers in Fallujah in 2004.

My own read of this situation: Mr. McGann was either looking to mock the TSA when (he figured) they let him through with materials usable for a bomb, or was just jonesin' for a Martyr Cookie by being arrested for a "piece of art" and then screaming "HELP, HELP, I'M BEING REPRESSED!".

re: #10 Dark_Falcon

and the tourniquets on both arms will help someone be a terrorist on an airplane, how?
