When I did stand-up a hundred years ago, I used to do a joke about how aviation security was always a few steps behind the terrorists. First someone tried to light a bomb in his shoes, and now we all have to take our shoes off before getting on the plane. Then someone tried to use liquids to make a bomb, so we can’t bring large quantities of liquids on the plane. I can’t wait for the day terrorists try to put a bomb in a baby. Because then we won’t be allowed to bring a baby on the plane. And who could argue with that?
