Whoever runs the Transportation Security Administration's (TSA) social media deserves a raise. Particularly the Instagram account. Their bio lists their name as "Travel Tips & Dad Jokes Hits" and it sure delivers. The posts are long, but genuinely funny. They call out people for trying to sneak prohibited items onto airplanes in the most ridiculous ways. Their posts gets thousands of likes and the responses are ruthless.[caption id="attachment_23207" align="alignnone" width="300"]

The comment section was on fire with people enjoying the post and adding their own insults.[caption id="attachment_23208" align="alignnone" width="300"]

Staying fresh, staying cool, and quickly finding these bullets at LaGuardia Airport (LGA)."[caption id="attachment_23210" align="alignnone" width="300"]

Furthermore, "It might have slipped your mammary so allow us to refresh it. Push-up to our link in bio and check out our 'What Can I Bring Tool'. It’ll reduce the stress off your back and make you feel more comfortable on your next travel adventure."
TSA with the Dad jokes
Despite TSA finding over 4000 guns in 2019, the account is very well natured. Granted, this doesn't make me forgive them for all the times they needlessly gave me a credit card swipe, but I can appreciate good humor regardless. So, before you go to the airport with a pistol in your carry on, reconsider. Lest you be roasted online in front of everyone.
