MNN reader and friend Charlie D. shot this photograph at LaGuardia airport of a TSA poster warning travelers that "snow globes are not allowed through the security checkpoint" because our safety is their priority.

This would be funny if it wasn't so stupidly sad. We've wasted billions of dollars on responding to the old attacks while creating an airport security apparatus that stomps all over average citizens while doing little to prevent an attack from any half-bright would-be terrorist. It's airport security theater.

And you know you can't have a snow globe in a theater. Heavens no. That would be far too dangerous.

Check out these photos of the TSA in action here on MNN.

The TSA: Keeping us safe from snow globe-wielding terrorists
We should all give thanks to the heroes at the Transportation Security Administration for keeping air travel free from snow globe attacks.
