"Don't you know who I am?"

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.

Honey looks like plastic explosives to the sensors

Same thing with peanut butter.

A good man doesn’t keep his honey in a jar.

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.

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.
