Well, you know, this is how some people in this present world are still fucking nutters...
"As people jet off for their summer holidays, the question of what you can and can't carry in your luggage is more pressing than ever - especially for those attempting to carry live creatures or unexploded mementoes of war. It's the age-old problem - you're overseas on a trip, you treat yourself to that 20lb lobster you've always promised yourself, and you need to get it home. What do you do now?
For one passenger at Boston's Logan International Airport, the answer was simply to check it in as part of their luggage allowance. But the crustacean wasn't allowed to fly, and the US Transportation Security Administration has now tweeted a picture of it.
He'd travelled from Australia via Hong Kong, and somehow had managed to get his cargo as far as his returning airport in Ningbo, in the east of the country, before officials stepped in.
The month before that, two women were filmed in Hong Kong stuffing live lobsters into a holdall. The fate of the creatures, and the women's destination, is not known, but it seems likely that they were destined for a journey of some kind.
It's not just live things that cause consternation at security checkpoints - the Eurostar has a consistent problem with people trying to bring unexploded shells from both world wars onto its trains.
They're found in France and then attempts are made to bring them over to the UK.
Its report also said that two pairs of fluffy handcuffs are confiscated by London City Airport staff every month on average.
Top of the report's confiscated list is snow globes, commonly depicting landmarks from the capital. These break the rule on not transporting more than 100ml of liquid on board a flight in hand luggage.
Also on the airport's banned list are potato forks for fondue sets - because they could be used as a weapon.
