97 Weirdest Items That The TSA Confiscated


What do grenades, eels, snakes, and ninja throwing stars all have in common? That’s right, you guessed it! They’re all things that passengers tried to bring on the plane with them, only to have them confiscated by Transportation Security Administration employees.

A fun fact that you probably didn’t know about the TSA is that it uploads lots of photos of the strange items its employees confiscated onto its Instagram account. A surprising amount of people think that it’s alright to smuggle in prohibited items like explosives (such as home-made bombs meant to literally cause avalanches) and weapons (like axes, cleavers, and even… keyblades).

We’ve collected some of the weirdest items that the TSA took away from passengers for your enjoyment. So scroll down, upvote your faves, drop us a comment below, and remember to follow the rules about what you can and most definitely cannot bring on a plane. After all, we wouldn’t want anything similar to Snakes on a Plane to repeat itself in real life, would we?

Most of us have stories about how we or someone close to us saw weird things going on at the airport. That includes emotional support pets like ducks or ponies. And incredibly awkward situations involving mistaken identities that accidentally lead to long-term relationships.

There’s something about the idea of flying that makes people lose their common sense and have their heads up in the clouds. The worst part? It’s not isolated to the stuff people pack.

While another time, a plane had to turn around and head back to the airport because someone took a very, very smelly poo. I’d love to be joking right now. But this is serious.

According to the BBC, the captain of the plane actually made an announcement about the “pungent smell” due to the “liquid fecal excrement” in the toilet. The plane turned around after 30 minutes of flying and headed back to the airport. The next available flight was 15 hours later.
