Top 10 Unusual Finds By The TSA in 2016


The TSA has one of the most entertaining Instagram accounts. On the account they primarily post interesting and odd items which are found trying to get through security.

They also share various tips for travelers like what can and can’t be brought on a plane in your carry-on.

I recently wrote how the TSA blocked a giant Teddy bear from flying at LAX.

Now the TSA has shared a gift with their Instagram followers.

The gift is a somewhat humorous video featuring their Top 10 Most Unusual Finds of 2016 hosted by Blogger Bob Burns.

I was definitely curious to see what unusual finds the TSA found this year which they consider  the strangest!

Here are the Top 10 Unusual Finds by the TSA in 2016:

  1. Mummy Movie Prop
  2. Gas Mask with Spikes
  3. Skeleton Hand Back Scratcher? (Not sure what this one is.)
  4. Sea Horse Liquor
  5. Metal Finger with Knife Attached
  6. Replica Exploding Vest
  7. Golden Hand Grenade
  8. Replica Lucille Bat from Walking Dead
  9. Pink Hello Kitty Gun
  10. Grenade Trailer Hitch

The items shown in the video are pretty strange but I felt that one should be replaced by the giant Teddy Bear.

I can’t say that I’ve heard of liquor with a sea horse in the bottle but I don’t think it sounds so unusual to bring home. It probably makes for a nice souvenir from whatever country it was purchased in! (I have a small bottle of liquor with a snake inside which I bought in Vietnam some years back.)

Which item from the TSA’s video do you feel is the oddest?
