TSA has a bone to pick with BWI flier's knife

The Transportation Security Administration has a bone to pick with a certain flier from Baltimore-Washington International Airport.

TSA posted a photo to its Instagram account Thursday of a knife made out what appears to be some type of bone, which was found on a carry-on bag at BWI. The government agency regularly posts images of confiscated items from airports and other travel-related information. However, this one took the cake. (Close second: gun-shaped heels with fake bullet straps.)

The detail of the skull carving makes the sharp object all the more intimidating. And with all those puns, you'd almost think the photo was some type of gag.

"Make no bones about it, no knives are allowed to be packed in carry-on bags. I'd make a joke about it, but there's nothing 'humerus' about trying to take prohibited items on the plane," the post read.

Since apparently TSA's policy bears repeating: Sharp objects, such as knives, cannot be carries on airplanes, according to its website.

Spokeswoman Lisa Farbstein wrote in an email that the passenger willingly handed over the knife when a TSA officer detected it.
