Emery Emery walks through the airport TSA with The Bill of Rights printed on a metallic card that he got from Penn Jillette.

Man, when I was sent back through the metal detector 4 times, it really got all the agents attention and I finally said, "Oh yeah! My metallic Bill Of Rights!" And pulled it out and handed it to the guy, he said "This needs to go through the X-Ray." So I walked over and, dropped it on the belt and the agents all started looking it over while I was being patted down.

Eventually, someone actually read it then she rolled her eyes and passed around from agent to agent while I was being ball-saged.

When I retrieved it, the lady was standing there staring at me and as I reloaded all my 3 oz. fluids, my PowerBook into my bag and put my shoes on, she asked, "So what's the point?"

I said, "You're violating the freedoms that card guarantees."

She shook her head and walked away.

The fact that you don't know what it is IS the point.  They think they're all high & mighty professionals when they're really minimum wage lackeys with an oh so scary sense of power.
