I was on my way to NYC today and got stopped by the machines because they sensed ‘explosive materials’ on my hands.
I had just eaten some weapon grade good teriyaki beef jerky…
My partner Tom who immediately sensed smart ass comments from me and embarrassing photos started snapping photos.
Things did escalate a bit, but eventually the humans and the machines cleared me.
I shared this photo on Stocktwits, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter and asked for a caption:

The answers on the Twitter and Stocktwits streams are damn funny. I was laughing out loud at a bunch of the hundreds of responses. I have had a few things go viral over the years but this was the most commented piece of content I have ever shared.
My personal favorite was from @rahagar who captioned the following:
‘Yes officer, if you put your ear on my ass you really can hear the ocean’
Runner up from @johnnmartin a friend in LA and cameraman on ‘Veep’:
‘Beta testing Snapchat’s new ‘Recticles’
I like being silly and it is great when an otherwise uneventful moment can lead to some good laughs.
