Kyle Bean has made a series of food sculptures in the shape of various weapons, improvised and traditional. I wonder if pieces of toast cut to look like brass knuckles would make it through a TSA checkpoint?
CUT magazine: 'Soft Guerilla'

Chief Wiggum: [Skinner with a bomb strapped to his chest] Wait a minute… that isn’t a bomb! Those are hot dogs! Armor hot dogs!
Superintendent Chalmers: What kind of man wears Armor hot dogs?
Homer adds: Mmmm… explodilicious!
You may have noticed this and just be quoting the Simpsons anyway, but the bomb in the photo isn’t hot-dogs, it’s Mini-Milks (small ice-creams on sticks, in this case strawberry flavoured).
A salt weapons?
From my experience, a peanut butter sandwich crust held in the form of a pistol wouldn’t make it through the TSA screening.
…but they’ll happily let you bring enough LiPo batteries on board to burn a hole through the fuselage.
Didn’t the TSA once object to someone wearing a shirt with a picture of a gun on it?
The TSA objected to someone wearing a shirt that said “We will not be silent” in Arabic.
Quite right too. The pilot or one of the air-crew might have a nut allergy. In the slightly sticky hands of an enemy of freedom, a loaded PB&J could have devastating consequences…
The TSA might not be concerned, but I think Powdered Toast Man will probably get a bit upset!
I could kill a man with a piece of toast.
no, this is great. Now I can have my PTSD flare up WHILE I am eating….
I want an E. coli modeled in plastique.
Are we to assume that isn’t a real knife?
*narrows eyes, puts on tough-guy face* I eat toast knuckles for breakfast.
Those toast knuckles are awesome. “Kidney-punch your hunger, with toast!” Yeah, I’d use that slogan.
If there’s a weaponized taco, you could use pepper spray on it.
Pepto Bismol popsicles? WTF are those?
