This is an absolutely true story.
I always travel with lots of suspicious looking wires and electronic devices on the X-Ray, so when I go through the scanner and I am asked, "Sir, is this your bag? Step aside." I enjoy watching them figure out exactly what I'm carrying.
That's also why I always check the Marital Aids.
