Name That List #3

Jenny submitted a "name that list" challenge. So here goes. What is this a list of?

Plastic fake swords, golf clubs, a hammer, cordless drill, kitchen knives stolen from restaurants, a bowling pin, a chain saw, circular saws, ninja swords, nunchucks, mini Louisville Slugger bats, machetes, a deer-hunting kit, fuzzy handcuffs, crutches, ulus (round Eskimo chopping blades), a Sit'n Putt (a short-handled putter designed to be used while you're on the potty), piƱata sticks, and 25 lbs of Swiss Army knives.

The answer is in the comments.

Answer: items confiscated by TSA at airport security checkpoints that are now being put up for sale at state surplus property agencies.

I'm curious why the Sit n Put was confiscated. What trouble could you POSSIBLY cause on an airplane with that?

I was going to say: things that could be, but shouldn't be, used to pleasure a woman.

Obviously Ryan, it's a security risk. You could club someone with the putter.

Years ago (long before 9/11) I learned that you cannot even carry on an unstrung recurve bow (archery bow), even if you have no bowstring or arrows with you. But the guy in front of you can carry on his 3 1/2 foot long massive umbrella with a pointy steel ferrule.

That's a good point, Big Gary, I didn't think of that. I guess the TSA actually HAS done something right!

BikerPuppy-- After 9/11, while working at Ottawa International, a captain with whome I worked had his lapel pin confiscated by security. A lapel pin. The captain.

You can't have fuzzy handcuffs on a plane now? Wonder what that's doing to the mile-high club members...
