Airport Insecurity

Okay, I’ll make this ad-related in a minute…
…but how insane is it that airport security wouldn’t let Troy Smith bring his Heisman Trophy on the plane????
Now, here’s my question for all you award-show winners: Has anyone had trouble carrying a One Show Pencil on the plane? Or a Cannes Lion?
What about your oversized portfolio cases or unusual photography equipment? Do you get any extra scrutiny? Has anyone from the TSA rummaged through your book looking for liquids and said, “Oh, Ogilvy did that 20 years ago”?
See, I told you there was an ad-related connection. I know I ship all *my* Lion stautettes home.
