Boston is known for its seafood — which is perhaps why someone wanted to take some with them through the airport.
Specifically, a 20-pound live lobster. According to TSA Spokesman Michael McCarthy, the crustacean was found in a passenger's checked luggage.
"I would be shocked if this isn't the biggest lobster TSA has screened, although I can't say for certain," McCarthy told NPR.
Humorous as this seems, the TSA is perfectly OK with passengers checking live lobsters.
But TSA's website says if someone wants to carry a live lobster through security screening, then it "must be transported in a clear, plastic, spill proof container" so officers can "visually inspect" it.
Always on the hunt for weapons, agents have discovered a bladed dragon claw, batarangs and even a bullet-covered gold gas mask — all in carry-on luggage.
Fun fact: TSA says regular gas masks are allowed on board airplanes.
But nothing is likely more bizarre than the corpse someone wheeled through an airport in Atlanta.
Turns out, it was a prop from the "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" film.
Still, we're guessing it turned plenty of heads.
