Who Brought The Cool Kid?

Heh. Skidmark sent this in so we could all have a good laugh...

Oops, TSA guy goes spray-zy!
A bumbling TSA agent “playing around” with a pepper-spray container at Kennedy Airport fired the caustic liquid at five fellow screeners yesterday, sending all six to the hospital, a source told The Post.

The agent, Chris Yves Dabel, discovered the device at the Terminal 2 security checkpoint and tried to determine if it was real, a source told The Post.
Because, apparently, in TSA school they teach you that the proper way to determine if pepper spray is real is by hosing your co-workers down with it. Dumbass. You know what the best part is? He claimed he thought it was a laser pointer, not a canister of pepper spray. Yeah, because shining a laser in someone's eyes is so much better than pepper spray. Remember, these are the folks that former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle insisted would not be professionals unless they were Feds...

You know what's funny? And here I don't mean ha-ha funny, I mean, if you don't laugh at the absurdity you're going to cry at the stupidity. If this were a store security guard at WalMart that pulled a stunt like this they'd be looking for employment. Chances are pretty good this idiot TSA agent won't even be reprimanded, let alone fired. The TSA was more interested in keeping this story out of the press than they were examining why their mouth-breathing employees think fooling around with less-than-lethal force multipliers is something to do for yucks.

These are the Keystone Kops allegedly charged with keeping us "safe" when we fly...

That is all.

Employment? No...if an ordinary citizen pulled a stunt like this they'd be looking for a lawyer and a bail bondsman.

But hey...at least the victims were only other TSA agents, and no innocents were harmed. (Although I'll bet a pretty large number were pissed off...pepper spray has a nasty tendency to produce an area effect.)

He sprayed 5, but all six went to the hospital. Did his cow-orkers whup his dumb ass for spraying them?
