Look, the bottom line is none of us like going through security. The part I hate is when people don’t “get it” or know what they are doing. It’s the same simple process and how can you not get it when there are the “Easy as 1-2-3″ signed plastered everywhere around. Now with new X-ray technology and the new scans things have gotten more interesting. But this in my mind is pretty funny! New underwear that sends a message to the people monitoring your scan!
We all want to be safe on our flights and I don’t mind security delays if it’s just “busy”. It’s the people that aren’t prepared and act clueless that gets my blood boiling a bit. But this is a pretty funny answer to the new X-ray scanners many airports have, including DFW that sends a friendly reminder to the people watching your full body scans come through before you are cleared to continue on.

Underwear with a message wins Gold Lion award
Boulder, Colo.-based clothing-seller 4th Amendment Wear nabbed a Gold Lion award in the Promo & Activation category for its metallic ink underclothes.
The firm’s offerings include men’s boxers and women’s underwear that have the 4th Amendment printed on them in an ink that is designed to shine bright in those full-body airport scanners.
The result: TSA X-ray officers are confronted with the amendment that protects against unreasonable searches just as they scan someone’s privates. The publicity surrounding the glowing garb caused 4th Amendment Wear to sell out its first run immediately.
