Can we please get gubment workers with half a frigging brain. It seems as though actor Peter Mayhew who played Chewbacca in the Star Wars movies was detained by the TSA because his cane was in the shape of a lightsaber.
'Star Wars' Chewbacca actor Peter Mayhew detained by TSA for light saber cane
Everyone has his own way to deal with airport security -- some go with the flow, some show up naked. But the man who played Chewbacca in the "Star Wars" films had a different approach: Last week, when confronted with TSA agents who thought his cane looked suspicious, Peter Mayhew reached for his Twitter account -- not a light saber.
Of course, the light saber was at the center of the controversy. The 7-foot-3-inch hospital worker-turned-Chewbacca player uses a light saber-shaped cane to get around, and on June 3 TSA agents in Denver felt it was a suspicious item. http://www.today.com/entertainment/s...ber-6C10262981
