TSA's Instagram account shares photos of confiscated contraband

Did you know the  Transportation Security Authority (TSA), known for it's snazzy blue uniforms and gum-snapping officers, posts confiscated contraband to Instagram? Between their tongue-in-cheek commentary and fans' hashtags, it's a great way to waste a little time and marvel at the number of people who try to bring loaded guns onto planes.

And an FYI to ninjas - check your throwing stars or leave them at home.

Visit the TSA's blog for an archive of confiscated items dating back to 2008 and Twitter for even more social media fun from the Man.
