“Another typical day at Hunter S. Thompson International Airport.”

(I don't know what this means, I just thought it was funny.)

And, for best short essay:

“All fruits or vegetables must be declared orally or in writing on the agriculture declaration form to the Customs & Quarantine Officer, but Mrs. Turniphead failed to declare her husband, a fashion consultant, who took offense at the poor posture of the attending officer. It may be illegal to smuggle vegetables across the border disguised as one's husband, but there is never an excuse for stooping.” - Elizabeth Cherry

Good job everybody!

See this is just so typical, Lydia! The Human Hand Grenade slips by security undetected, and his mortal wife is incriminated for a nail file.

The deception ... perfect: in a track suit and dressed as an ogre-sized M&M. No one would suspect! But suspicion got the better of Luke Nuke and almost past security, he blew his top.

Search her well, officer. She looks suspicious.

I'll tell you what this is, it's profiling!!

It's her fault! She packed my bags!

If I miss my under-the-wing seat, you're in big trouble.

I'm harmless. Just ask her. I shoot nothing but blanks.

1. "Oh, sure. Wand all the blondes, but never the redheads!"

2. Helen Hunt's new movie, "My Husband the turnip"

3. Another typical day at Hunter S. Thompson International Airport.

4. Being chief of airport security was starting to take its toll on Bob McGiantredblob. It was just *impossible* to get new recruits to pay attention in Wanding Class.

5. This man, a master of disguise, was finally apprehended today in connection with several bank robberies. Authorities have rewarded the security guard and the weird, fat, red man for their assistance in apprehending him.

6. "My cousin Pac-Man will hear about this!"

7. "I'm very mad about being in the most unfunny picture ever, I'll have you know!"

8. "Don't you look at me! I'm allergic to synthetics, is all it is!"

9. "Not all twins are identical twins, bub."

10. "Purple pants? No wonder they pulled you aside."
