Granted if the underwear bomber had actually been successful in blowing his ass off, along with the plane, I can see checking whether someone was wearing boxers or briefs. After all that’s pretty easy to do – please sir drop your pants so we can see if those Fruit of the Loom are packing any surprises, but what happens if it isn’t the ass you need to worry about but rather the boobs.
Yup, that is now the newest concern of security experts as there is supposedly some chatter going on about the possibility that radical Islamist plastic surgeons could be outfitting equally radical Islamic women with explosive double-D’s.
Explosives experts have reportedly said just five ounces of Pentaerythritol Tetrabitrate packed into a breast implant would be enough to blow a “considerable” hole in the side of a jumbo jet.
It would be virtually impossible for airport security scanners to detect the explosive if hidden inside a breast, medics have said.
Joseph Farah, a terrorism expert, told The Sun: “Women suicide bombers recruited by al-Qaeda are known to have had the explosives inserted in their breasts under techniques similar to breast enhancing surgery.”
Plastic surgeons may also have inserted the chemical into the buttocks of would-be suicide bombers.
You know there is a whole bunch of T&A jokes just busting to get out.
