Working for the TSA is one of the toughest jobs in America.
On a daily basis, our brave TSA agents are tasked with keeping dangerous people and items off of our planes.
One TSA agent was view-source:http://conservativetribune.com/tsa-agents-stunned-beast/ when he discovered a 20-pound lobster in someone’s airport luggage. Even crazier, the lobster was still alive.
Carrying live lobsters is legal and the passenger did nothing wrong, but the sheer size of this lobster certainly shocked the TSA agent handling it.

“Lobsters can travel in either carry-on or checked bags,” explained WBZ-TV in Boston. “They’re a common sight at New England airports, but this one was notable because of how large it is.”
Whiny liberals started criticizing the TSA for taking a photo of the giant lobster and accused them of violating the passengers privacy.
“If lobster was legal baggage and allowed to continue, why take a picture of it and post it? Privacy issue?” asked Scott McGrew, an NBC reporter.
“I wondered the same thing,” echoed another user. “If they find something interesting in a checked bag, they can take pics of it and send to media?”
Even the lobster’s owner attacked the TSA over the photo.
“That’s not part of their jobs, it’s not what we pay for, it’s not how we feel protected,” Lisa Feinman, the owner of the lobster, told WTNH News in Connecticut.
“Yes it was a huge lobster, and yes it is a novelty that we all don’t see very often, but really the bigger picture was this is a TSA agent that is going through our personal property and taking selfies,” Feinman declared.
Do you think the TSA went too far when they posted the picture, or was it simply posted for humorous purposes? Share this story on social media and leave a comment below.
