Submitted For Your Approval: The TSA ‘Wiener Screener’

In case you missed it, LA has its own viral contribution to the anti-TSA x-ray scanner movement: Bikini Girl. Love the twist at the end.

OK, now that we got that out of the way, here comes the real point. Seeing the coverage of this video reminded us how lame the names are that people have come up with to describe these x-ray machines.

“Porno screener,” the most popular, is awful. People like porn. It’s the reason Al Gore invented the Internet. If you wanted to make fun of the TSA’s daddy issues, then drop a porn reference. Otherwise, it doesn’t work.

So, submitted for your approval, we formally introduce “Wiener Screener” as the new meme of choice for anti-TSA x-ray backlash. Catchy, funny, yet serious too. Remember the guy who assaulted his colleagues at TSA after they made fun of his manhood.

Wiener Screener, try it on for size. And anyone who can come up with something good for the female side of the equation, let us know.
