TSA Revealed The Most Ridiculous Items Confiscated In 2017.

Flying is great, but not when you're having to go through security. Not one person enjoys waiting in long lines, or stripping down to show that they're not strapped with a bomb. But, there are reasons we need TSA, and their Instagram account definitely proves that.

Brass knuckles were invented in the 18th century, and they've come a long way since then. Having the perfect face-punching, smooth piece of metal wasn't quite enough. They had to combine that with a meat tenderizer, too! Luckily, this one was found in someone's carry-on bag at Buffalo Airport.

Make sure that if you're traveling with industrial tools, you put them in your checked luggage.

We can't seem to think of a reason why anyone would need to bring a sickle on a plane. Maybe the guy was a farmer and the sickle was his lucky tool that brought him good fortune. He could also be auditioning for a horror flick and thought it would look good if he brought his own props.

We assumed that airplanes were sure to be safe from predators. Maybe we were wrong.

It's pretty safe to assume that if someone is carrying around a can of bear-deterrent spray at an airport, then they've probably been attacked before and are suffering from PTSD. We understand the need to be safe no matter where you are, but we feel pretty confident that a plane cabin has been checked for bears before take-off.

You may be a huge fan of ninja movies, but the TSA doesn't want you bringing props on board.

It's been quite a long time since knives and blades were allowed on a plane. Throwing stars are pretty much a bunch of fancy blades that are connected in the middle. It would only make sense that they were banned, as well. People don't seem to care too much about that little rule, do they?

If you think that a bunch of garbage glued together is art, we've got a picture for you.

When the person was asked why they brought this onto a plane at Milwaukee Airport, they said that it was an art project. We're certainly not here to judge, but how could they possibly think they'd get this through security? Freedom of expression is great, but we're not sure that this applies.

Don't want TSA groping you? Try not hiding things on your body.
