This morning we were talking about the craziness that is happening at the airports these days…people are not happy about the TSA’s new full body scanner, and the type of pat downs they put on people they are at the security check point. It boils down to one major issue: The Penis. Yes, thejohnson, the package, the sausage…in fact some people are calling this full body scanner as the “D*** Measuring Device.” Yes, the x-ray does show what you are…or aren’t packing. This bodes poorly for the insecure “growers not showers” out there. This could lead to a new business venture…next to the shoe shine guy could be a woman and a curtain, and she could be called “the Flyer Fluffer” – making sure you “look” your best for that full body scan. I was troubled to hear that they do serious pat downs…not the quickie pat down like you get at a concert, but the kind a cop would do where they pat until they hit “resistance.” Look…I don’t want no dude feeling me up. In a world where the airlines are trying to cash in on the entire flying experience…charging for extra baggage, meals, etc…I propose this….you can pay an extra 5 bucks to pick who you want to pat ya down.

Speaking of music…I will forever be entertained by Kanye West…he got into with Matt lauer on the Today show, all because the Today show was running what happened with him & Taylor Swift at an awards show unter the interview as he was talking about the incident…check out the interview. Kanye is the ultimate heel of pop culture…if music ever ends for him, he should be a manager for a wrestler!!! It all goes down at around the 6:40 mark of this video clip.
Today’s video blog is a stroll down memory lane as my parents sent me pictures of me as a kid….enjoy a slide show of Lil’ STP:
