World famous English ethologist, evolutionary biologist and unrelenting critic of religion and the religious, Richard Dawkins, has turned his anger on airport security rules after he had a jar of honey confiscated.
Dawkins, who is no stranger to Twitter controversy following alleged anti-Muslim comments he made back in August, declared on the micro-blogging site that Bin Laden has won, in airports of the world every day after security took away his jar of honey.

Richard agrees with Judy Collins, who famously sang “I Always Cook With Honey!”. Good acoustic Hippy music,
It's surprising that a man who continually basks in the warm glow of his own brilliance would be unaware of the rules.
Perhaps it was his first time slumming among the hoi polloi as opposed to private jets.
Though I never attributed it to bin ladin, I've been saying this for years.
Honey looks like plastic explosives to the sensors
Same thing with peanut butter.
A good man doesn’t keep his honey in a jar.
Get the honey junior
You’d be hard pressed to convince by laden of that right now.
What a dork.
Maybe he should pray for its return.
He needs an anger management class.
I might put up a fight if it was Leatherwood.
hey give the guy a break. the material world is all he has. and he sees barack and the other pretty people getting to break the rules. it’s hard when you learn you aren’t in the club and you’re in coach with the rest of the proles.
Guess the guy does have to be put down to earth before he can be lifted up again.
I suspect it was in a glass jar. I had a small jar of peach preserves in carry on from SC, and it was confiscated. When I told the agent that I had some Duke’s Mayonnaise in my other bag, they told me plastic jars are okay.
Dawkins is an obnoxious anti-Christian bigot.
End of Story.
The press gets freaked out when he speaks out against Muslims though. That’s one reason they pay attention to him.
First time I’ve agreed with him...
What a whiney little b7tch. Oh, no! Not my precious honey! If you don’t want the problems, Dawk, just stay in your own country. The world would be far better off.
Maybe that shooter in LA was a fan of Richard’s, and Richard’s rants against the TSA being a tool of Bin Laden caused him to want to kill TSA agents.
I can’t argue with him. My wife had some very expensive hand lotion taken from her. It was a 6 ounce tube that was a little less than half full. The agent said she wasn’t allowed to bring more than 4 ounces. Obviously, she wasn’t very good at math.
Maybe he should try wearing a burka.
