Travel is a hassle for an 8-year-old Cub Scout from New Jersey.
That's because Mikey Hicks shares the same name of a person who has drawn the suspicion of the Homeland Security Department.
His mother tells The New York Times she sensed trouble when her son was a baby and she couldn't get a seat for him at a Florida airport. She says airline officials explained his name "was on the list."
He was patted down as a 2-years-old at Newark Liberty International Airport.

You gotta keep an eye on those Cub Scouts; they carry pocket knives, ya know.
as a poster on the link noted, “they ARE prepared!” hehe
Come to find out, his father has the same name as the son. Dad is married to a Middle Eastern woman. Apparently, Americans who travel frequently and are married to Middle Easterners get put on the “watch list”. Unfortunately, the kid gets caught up in it.
Don’t put the radical islamic fanatic underwear bomber on the watch list when HIS OWN FREAKING PARENTS REPORT HIM TO THE EMBASSY!!!!! But put this 8 year old on there in a heartbeat. Insanity.
Bill Oddie was in a three part episode of Married With Children.
That's because he wasn't wearing his diapers on his head.
I remember that too. Bill sometimes gets a mention on Top Gear. My favorite out of the three is Graeme.
Top Gear - smashing television, that.
fond memories of the Goodies, Benny Hill, Dave Allen and of course Monty Python. then of course there was the Paul Hogan Show
I had forgotten about them until about 10 years ago myself. Dave Allen, Benny Hill, and MP were greats in their own rights. Paul Hogan is one I would love to see out on DVD.
