According to King5, St. Louis TSA agents confiscated a tiny toy prop gun that sat in the tiny holster of a tiny sock monkey.

Yeah, a sock monkey. According to the King5 report,

[Phyllis] May said the TSA agent went through the bag, through the sewing supplies and found the two-inch long pistol.

“She said ‘this is a gun,’” said May. “I said no, it’s not a gun it’s a prop for my monkey.”

“She said ‘If I held it up to your neck, you wouldn’t know if it was real or not,’ and I said ‘really?’” said May.

I’m glad to see we’re using taxpayer money so efficiently here. That monkey does look like he might be up to no good… Photo Credits: Phyllis May
