Penguin Profiling

Let's be clear on this. Kid Various does not support racial and ethnic profiling. Yes, 99% of all terrorists are young, Arab males. However, it is important to realize that 99% of young, Arab males are not terrorists and therefore, a policy which specifically targets young, Arab males for further scrutiny in the absence of other evidence is ultimately counterproductive and plain Un-American (a concept that has no parallel in the rest of the world. You can never be Un-French.)

Therefore, we all have to deal with the increased hassle of random searches and increased observation of everybody.

Of course, sometimes the TSA officials make a show of harassing those obviously not plying the terrorist trade. The grandmother from Wisconsin. The little kid from Texas. And we at The Idiom are pretty sure, they could have let the penguins go...



That's right. Two penguins from Sea World in San Diego, Pat and Penny, recently traveled through the Denver International Airport. Upon approaching security, they were made to get out of their carry case, remove their shoes and waddle through the magnetometer for the purpose of...

Oh, hell, Kid Various can't even fathom why the TSA officials would make them go through the metal detector.

Word was, they confiscated a nail file from Penny.

It could have been an exploding penguin. I really think you need to consider that possibility.

In the future, they damned well better screen all the penguins, lest they be accused of penguin profiling.

Yeah. And now they'll probably make Lemmings -- oh wait! Nevermind. Ah. Air travel is such a ... privilege.
