TSA Disarms Potentially Dangerous Sock Monkey Doll

Good work TSA, you've disarmed a potentially dangerous sock monkey!

The Transportation Security Administration seized a tiny tony pistol from a cowboy themed sock monkey at the St. Louis Airport recently. The woman transporting the monkey makes them and says she was "appalled and shocked and embarrassed" by the incident.

The TSA issued a statement this week saying under "longstanding aircraft security policy, and out of an abundance of caution, realistic replicas of firearms are prohibited in carry-on bags."
