Pat-Down Put-Down

Sorry I’ve been so quiet lately. But I have a great excuse: Mark and I went on the first annual Lewis Black Comedy Cruise. You can read all about our fun comedy cruise adventures here.

But now it’s time to get back to the work of political mockery. Fortunately, I’ve returned from my travels just in time to make fun of the TSA’s delightful new privacy-invading screening procedures. And I’m still trying to figure out which I prefer as my ticket to plane boarding: a “nude body scan or genital groping.”

That brings me to my latest limerick:

Pat-Down Put-Down
By Madeleine Begun Kane

You’re a teen and can’t get to first base?
You’re a fondler, but fearful of Mace?
Well a pat-down career
Can be yours. (Front and rear.)
Be a TSA Feel-Her-Up Ace.

    My brother’s in the TSA
    and all he can say is Yea!
    When his chin’s on the ground
    He can do a pat-down
    and he feels better the rest of the day.

    I get a kick from champagne,
    which I’ll gulp when I get on the plane.
    Porn-view or grope?
    I’d like to say ‘Nope’,
    but I do have to get back to Maine.

    “I’m waiting for the first colostomy bag bomb. That’d sure inspire some dirty limericks!”

    Thanks for that post! It made my day.

    A talking teen bird we call Dinah
    Told the agent who probed her small handbag,
    I’d like more, if you please,
    But no hand ‘tween my knees…
    Can’t you see, I am only a mynah?
