This is the busiest travel time of the year. A ton of people going in and out of airports, train stations and bus terminals means a ton more lunatics looking to get home for the holidays.

Yesterday, the TSA invited a group of reports to check out some of the items they’ve confiscated over the years from passengers. I guess my invite was lost in the mail but Gothamist was allowed to take photographs and the TSA’s stash is hilarious.

Check out some of the crazy items people have tried to sneak on an airplane, which include, real Ninja Turtle nunchucks, massive socket wrenches, daggers and a ton of other weapons I thought only existed in video games.
