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.

Game of Thrones fans are a passionate lot.

For eight seasons they wrung their hands and argued back and forth about who would sit on the iron throne and rule the seven kingdoms in the end.

But it turns out, the show may have told us right from the beginning.

But a couple of Reddit posters are trying to ameliorate the vitriol flying at the end of the show by fleshing out a fan theory-which actually, totally makes sense.

Bye Felicia!

Best friends for life! That's the motto. Friends before lovers because lovers come and go. The list of friendship mantras is endless. So you would think that means everyone sees their relationships with the people they call their closest, not blood related, chosen family will be endless. No expirations date. Sadly this is not always the case. Sometimes people do just come and go in your life, actually the older you get you realize most people come and go and ninety percent of the time, the going is the best thing that happens. It's not the happiest fact but it is often the sanest. Life is long, you can have many besties.

Redditor u/HairyFaithlessness was interested in hearing some the best reasons behind... Why don't you talk to your once "best friend" anymore? Pay attention for yourself in these. Red flags are afoot.

A Jeopardy! contestant underestimated host Alex Trebek's intelligence when he clarified a gambling phrase in layman's terms.

James Holzhauer is a Las Vegas sports gambler, which is something not that different from playing the popular TV trivia game show.

He wagered "two dimes" and the brief silence that followed prompted Holzhauer to explain what he meant in case the omniscient host was in the dark.
