15 Items People Should Have Left At Home Before Boarding Their Flight.

If you've ever been on a plane then you already know that it can be a rigorous process to actually be allowed into the terminal. You have to arrive two hours (or more) early in order to get in line to be searched. It can be a pretty invasive process, but it's essential in order to keep everyone safe. Keep scrolling to see some of the crazy things people have tried to sneak onto the plane before the TSA stopped them in their tracks.

#1. You're probably shaking your head and asking yourself why TSA would be freaking out over a toy.

As one TSA employee explained, "Yeah, I know… It’s a pink plastic toy. But as I’ve explained before, anything that resembles a grenade is not permitted. At all. Jurassic’n for a bag search if you pack one." So remember, if you try to sneak toy weapons on an airplane the TSA will have a bone to pick with you.

#2. Movie props have to be screened just like this one from the Texas Chain Saw Massacre.

"This crusty ol' chap is actually a prop from the Texas Chainsaw Massacre movie. He was brought through a checkpoint at the Atlanta (#ATL) International Airport, where as you can see, he was screened and sent on his jolly way."

#3. "We’re not looking for your jazz cabbage, but if we find it, we’ll have to notify local law enforcement."

That's exactly what the TSA had to say when they found 80 pounds of marijuana packed in a carry-on. Their "jazz cabbage" was confiscated.

Even though it's perfectly fine to carry a lobster in your carry-on luggage, it's important to check with the airline first for packing instructions.

Who wouldn't want a comb that could protect you against more than just a bad hair day?
