The Weirdest Things Passengers Tried to Carry Onto Airplanes in 2016

The Transportation Security Administration has released its annual list of the strangest items officers encountered at the nation's airports this year. 

As you might expect, nearly all the objects in the top 10 are weapons or at least weapon-adjacent. They include a bright pink Hello Kitty firearm, a bullet-adorned gas mask, and a scary-looking knife/whip combo called a "five-bladed flogger" that we can't even begin to imagine a use for.  

Top honors went to a comparatively harmless full-size prop corpse from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, which passed through an x-ray machine at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport back in May.

To see the full list, go to the TSA's blog or watch the video below.
