If a monkey can be smuggled undetected onto a plane to New York, under some guy's hat, then Homeland Security has a brand new monkey on it's back

They make us take off our shoes and get strip searched because they're worried about explosives, but they miss a monkey?
Federal investigators are trying to determine how a man smuggled a monkey from Peru to New York...under his hat.

I baking powder? Exsqueeze me?

It began Monday when the man boarded a flight from Peru to Fort Lauderdale, Florida with the tiny monkey tucked under his hat.

He then spent several hours at the Fort Lauderdale airport before catching a connecting flight to New York's La Guardia airport.

During that flight the monkey crawled out from under the man's hat and onto his shoulder, where it was spotted by other passengers.

Pardon me while I stifle a giggle. This makes such a farce out of our Very Serious Security People that I'm tempted to get on a flight to D.C. with a chimp under my cap, just to see if anyone notices.

Oh wait. President Cheney's most likely already done that with Vice President Bush. Never mind.

It's a really cute monkey though. You gotta admit.

TSA was probably too busy confiscating contact lens cleaner, hand lotion, and mascara to notice a marmoset under a guy's hat.

Hey, the headline made me think that maybe someone was trying to smuggle Bush past airport security... no fair. I thought he was trying to flee his poll numbers.
Oh, right, he doesn't read poll numbers.
As for the TSA, well, what do you expect? Ebola must be better than my bottle of Jergens.

Inexperienced Monkey Device is just as bad as an IED.
These monkeys could bite you so bad that it could hurt.
Thank "God" that no-one was hurt.
We still don't know that it was a Radical Islamic monkey.
We have to keep on our toes.
If it wasn't for Bush these monkeys would take over our country and make us climb trees.
Thankyou Homeland Security to keep us on the ground.

Is that a banana in your pocket or are you just hap... hey, that IS a banana in your pocket!

My only question: Did the guy treat the monkey to headphones for the movie?

Fortunately airline security noticed and confiscated the organ grinder. This was a major victory in the war against terrorist street musicians.
