    An airline passenger claimed that a security guard threatened to arrest him because he was wearing a T-shirt showing a cartoon robot with a gun.

    Brad Jayakody, 30, from London, said he was stopped from passing through security at Heathrow's Terminal 5 after his Transformers T-shirt was deemed 'offensive.'

    The IT consultant was set to fly off on a business trip to Dusseldorf in Germany when he was pulled to one side.

    Note that the journalist didn't do his/her homework. Megatron was on the shirt, not Optimus Prime. Silly Brits. :p

    Well, no wonder they were offended! Megatron is the bad guy. If he'd worn Optimus Prime, they'd have let him through with no problem. :D

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!
