It’s late November in America, which means Thanksgiving, that beautiful and patriotic celebration of gluttony and genocide, is almost upon us. That in turn means that airport lines will soon swell enormously and swallow every traveler whole.
To celebrate, the Transportation Security Administration has published a jocular blog post full of bad puns and winking warnings against bringing any prohibited items through security. “Let’s get the travel tips started by addressing the 15-pound turkey in the room,” Bob Burns of the TSA Blog Team writes. “Yes, your turkey can fly.” Bob also notes that you can bring your turkey in your carry-on or your checked bag, but cautions that “if you have a live turkey, you’ll need to contact your airline about their guidelines and possible restrictions.” Sound advice.
