Chevy Chase gets his first laugh in two decades

|

Complaints by celebrities Chevy Chase, Joan Rivers and Susan Lucci that property had been stolen from their luggage has led to the arrests of four security screeners at LaGuardia and Kennedy airports, authorities said yesterday.

One of the screeners was later shot dead while trying to sell the last known copy of Oh, Heavenly Dog! to an undercover police officer. Link via Free-Market.net.

  1. One of the screeners was later shot dead while trying to sell the last known copy of Oh, Heavenly Dog! to an undercover police officer.

    Just on principle, I imagine.

  2. I’m a little bit puzzled – were the hidden cameras set up specifically because three celebs complained? The story makes it sound like that, but isn’t explicit. If so, what the fuck? I’m sure they had no shortage of complaints by non-celebs. Do we have to have Chevy Chase or Penn Jillette get pissed off before there’s some accountability from TSA?

    “‘It is particularly troubling that individuals responsible for insuring the safety and security of our nation’s airlines and protecting us from terrorism would engage in this conduct,’ Brown said in a statement.”

    No, what’s particularly troubling is that these shit-brained idiots couldn’t figure out that this sort of theft was an inevitable consequence of the sort of bullying secrecy and non-accountability that TSA operates under.

  3. Is there a “B” actor convention going on in the city? Is that the reason for all this extra security I see?

  4. A month and a half ago here in South Florida, four screeners were arrested for the same thing. Favorite detail: Shirley MacLaine filed one of the complaints after some New Age crystals went missing.

  5. I wonder why she didn’t hire a psychic to find them.

  6. I wonder why she didn’t hire a psychic to find them.
