The Transportation Security Administration flagged a “corpse” being shipped on an airplane, and discovered it to be a prop from a Texas Chainsaw Massacre movie.
This had to make the day of the TSA employees to first come across a realistic corpse prop from a horror film. Even if they weren’t familiar with the Texas Chainsaw Massacre movies, seeing the dead dummy had to be more interesting than rifling through bags of tourists’ underwear.
The TSA apparently got such a kick out of screening one of Leatherface’s victims through airport security, that they took pictures to post on their official Instagram saying:
Talk about deadheading… This crusty ol’ chap is actually a prop from the #TexasChainsawMassacre movie. He was brought through a checkpoint at the Atlanta (#ATL) International Airport, where as you can see, he was screened and sent on his jolly way. #TSAOnTheJob
