Michael Martin went through a hassle trying to fly out of Fort Lauderdale recently because his name was on a no-fly list. Rather than protest to authorities, he nervously turned to his mom for comfort.

Take a look at his photo. Would you mess with him? I can see the bags of fertilizer and ammonium nitrate right next to his bunk bed. And those drumsticks? [shudder] Don’t even get me started.

Good on ya, TSA. Good on ya. Another win for the good guys.
