Passenger Who Explained That Bag Of 'Moose Poop' Nuggets Is For Politicians To TSA Security Is Peak 2019

2019 has absolutely been a year filled with sh*tty politics.

But one unnamed hero has risen to the occasion to run with the poop pun in ways neither we—nor the TSA—imagined possible.


Back in April, Transportation Security Administration agents at the Juneau, Alaska airport stopped a passenger to further inspect his luggage. Their machines had detected a "large organic mass" in his carry-on.

Sometimes, according to agents, this can be a red flag for explosives made from fertilizers.

What they found when they checked his luggage wasn't exactly a bomb—but it certainly raised a stink.

They shared the story on their official social media accounts.

Their caption read:

"Mondays can really stink. After a weekend of relaxation, the first day back at work can be hard to deal with. Here's a nugget of wisdom to help get you through the day: 'Monday is the day where the slate from the previous week is wiped clean; It is a day of new beginnings'."
"Our team at Juneau International Airport (JNU) recently dealt with 'nuggets' of a different variety when examining a passenger's carry-on bag. Upon inspection, a large organic mass turned out to be a bag of moose nuggets (or feces, droppings, excrements, etc.) that the passenger was taking home from their Alaskan adventure."

However, turns out there are no TSA rules against poop in your carry-on!

"While TSA has no policies that would prevent you from traveling with a bag of animal poo, we would strongly suggest that you check with your airline on their policies. Several carriers do have rules in place to avoid smelly situations aboard their planes. Besides, having to leave your souvenirs behind would really stink."⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Hilariously, when questioned about the bag of poop the man said he had spent time collecting moose droppings as a gift of sorts. He shamelessly told TSA agents he intended to hand them out to politicians.

TSA often shares their unusual finds online, including compiling an annual list.

Wildlife experts will caution you to give the moose of Alaska some serious space.

The animals are large, and generally peaceful, but are quite capable of seriously injuring someone if they feel threatened. We have no idea how our unnamed hero collected his prized specimens, but we hope it was done with the comfort and safety of himself and the moose in mind.

TSA did advise that some airlines have rules in place about flying with some particularly pungent packages. You may not be able to fly the fecal skies.

Although dried moose nuggets lack odor and are sold in the state or Maine and Alaska as souvenirs.

Seriously.

We can't confirm the passenger was able to get their prized poop aboard, but we would like to think that maybe, just maybe, this incident is related.



Whoever you are, mystery political poop protester, we salute you.

They say that some of the greatest comedy springs from the greatest tragedy.

And that sentiment is most certainly true when it comes to Stephen Colbert.

While many know the comedian as a smart, funny, and charismatic late night personality from critically acclaimed shows like The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, and The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, it may come as a surprise that Colbert has dealt with an incredible amount of loss in his life.

If there's some animosity, the process can be straight up traumatizing - but it's 2018 and we're all about making the best out of the worst, so let's find those silver linings, shall we? Divorce isn't all bad. Turns out, it's gone some pretty sweet bonuses attached.

Full confession, my closest friends often tell me I'm the dumbest genius they know. I breezed through school, handle advanced concepts with ease - and I spent ten minutes looking for my phone in the dark by using the flashlight app on my phone. The saddest part is I didn't even realize how dumb I was being on my own. I tried to recruit my ten-year-old to help me and she just stood there staring at the phone in my hand with the sort of silent pre-teen judgy face you see in sitcoms.

I'm not a people person...

Some of us are gregarious, loud, thrill seeking (often obnoxious) introverts. We love everything and anything social. Are opposite friends are introverts. We look at them and can't help but feel... they just need a little friendly shove into the fun. Not so. Often they are perfectly content in their quiet company of one. Many do have a crippling social anxiety that can drive them to some interesting predicaments when they are thrust into a public situation.
