Suspicious item.

Going through security in the Frankfurt airport resulted in my backpack getting tagged with a suspicious looking item. Rummaging through my bag the security guy pulled out the suspicious item...my Bible.

Friendly German security guy: "Is this really a Bible? I'm going to have to do some extra test on this...follow me."

We proceeded over to the special area where another security agent joined us and began to rub my Bible with some chemical sensor thing. The security guards seemed to get a kick out of it. I was still wondering if I was going to have to buy a new Bible. One security agent actually looked to see what version it was (NIV...in case you were wondering).

Thank goodness my Bible passed the test and got to come back to America with me.

I did tell them that the Bible is a powerful weapon. I could of read them verses but they didn't seem to care. They just thought it was funny....as did I. Although everything is funny when you get up at 2 am.

Whenever I go to eastern europe I always take a crucifix with me because of all the vampires. If one ever stops me at airport security I just push it into their forehead until they turn into dust.
