ITGITC Posted August 12, 2004 Share Posted August 12, 2004 So this guy, Brian Teasley, is a percussionist for a 25-member band called The Polyphonic Spree of Dallas. He recently played a gig in Austin for an episode of Austin City Limits. Last Thursday he was packing for the trip home to Birmingham. He put a custom-made microphone in his suitcase so he could do a bit of recording in his home studio. SHURE-'nuf airport security at the Dallas Fort Worth International Airport x-rayed the suitcase, spotted what THEY thought was most certainly a gun, and shut down a terminal area and five gates. A bomb disposal robot was called to the scene to remove the custom-made microphone from his luggage. When the suitcase didn't show up on the baggage carousel in Birmingham, Mr. Teasley filled out the missing luggage paperwork and went home. However, when he arrived home he had a pretty big surprise waiting for him: guys wearing bulletproof vests emerged from unmarked cars with tinted windows to ummmmm... ask him a few questions. Harrumph! Perhaps the next time he travels, he should carry the mic in his pants pocket. Then the security ladies can simply ask "Is that a microphone in your pocket or are you just glad to see me?" (ba-dum-bump) Is There Gas In The Car? "Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent." - Victor Hugo Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
