I was on a flight from TPA
with a friend of mine, and we were talking about silly rules, and I brought up Fruitcake being on the TSA
's list of things not to put in you carry on. He asked why, and I explained that on the xray machine it appears to be a bomb or some such thing. When I said this he turned as white as a ghost and was like, "You said BOMB on an airplane!!" It was actually rather comical. He was convinced that if someone heard us talking about fruitcake that the aircraft would be diverted and we would be kicked off the plane. It was all rather comical actually.
