10 Reasons You Should Follow TSA on Instagram

If you're a frequent traveler, odds are TSA is synonymous with "I have room for my shaving cream or my liquid foundation, but not both." You know the struggle of the 3-1-1 rule. You know not to pack large scissors in your carry-on or to bring the water bottle you brought from home through security, but overall, TSA rules are not that hard. If you're like me, you've probably seen the detailed prohibited items list at some point and laughed to yourself thinking "why would anyone try to pack an ax anyway?", and you've probably rolled your eyes at the guy ahead of you in line that didn't take off his shoes and tried to bring a 2 liter bottle of Pepsi in his carry-on bag. Amateur.

But for every Pepsi-carrying travel newbie, there's some guy that thought it was okay to pack that ax, or a bag full of fireworks, or some medieval torture device you didn't even know existed, and TSA has seen it all. Here are 10 reasons you should follow them on Instagram.

1. The bomb and drug dogs are super cute when you're not the one they're chasing.

2. Batarangs. Who actually knew these were called "batarangs?"

3. Man, I don't have room for my knife AND my gun. What should I do?

4.This not-so-smart phone.

5. Lipstick tazer.

6. Lipstick knife. Don't mix these up with your real lipstick.

7. I'm not even mad; I'm impressed.

8. Ruh-roh.

9. "I just needed a haircut, I swear!"

10. And my personal favorite, the crazy cat-lady weapon of choice: Cat Knuckles.

Thanks, TSA, for keeping me safe, keeping me entertained, and keeping me suspicious of the human race and everyday objects.
