Ok, is anyone else shocked that it's taken this long for a vibrator to shut down an airport? That's what happened recently when a buzzing sound emanating from a cafeteria trash can sent the security folks in an Australian airport into a tailspin. But really, given the heightened security we've seen for the last few years, this ought to be sort of a routine enounter by now. I mean geez, you gotta figure that thousands of vibrators have been sent through bags since 9/11, and that no small number of them must've gone off by now. I'd think airport personnel would be schooled in the fine art of identifying that buzz because it is a relatively common occurence. (Can you picture it, "No Sam, I think that sounds like the subtle pulse of a Dynomite, rather than the steady hum of the Beaver."). To be fair, I guess the fact that it was in the trash can threw them off. After all, who tosses a perfectly fine vibrator out with their leftover sandwich?I'm a fairly seasoned traveler and have taken dozens of vibrators through the carry-on security checks, and even I've noticed those folks are getting downright vibrator-savvy. Last time I watched as that conveyer belt slowed down, allowing the guard to scrutinize the X-ray version of my Hitachi (it does sort of look like a mini baseball bat). But then she glanced up at me and smiled. Far more pleasant than the time a guard opened up my bag, pointed to the Nubby G and said, "What's that?," only to have my honest reply, "A vibrator," send waves of blush over his face.Ah well, at least all the jet-setting Aussies in the airport that day had a good story to tell for their troubles!
