The Transportation Security Administration hasn’t been having much fun recently. The agency responsible for bag checks and making you wait in looooong airport lines is under attack by its Congressional overseers. Even the House member who helped conceive of the TSA after Sept. 11 says a $7.8 billion budget and more than 50,000 airport screeners is excessive.

That hasn’t stopped one employee of the agency from having a good time.
