Mama’s Boy

By | August 24, 2006

A 29-year-old man in Chicago opted to face arrest rather than face the disappointment of his mother. We must commend Madin Azad Amin for not wanting to disappoint her, although we question his intelligence.

He was stopped on August 16th on his way to Turkey when an item resembling a grenade was found in his baggage. When asked to identify it, he said it was a bomb. He later claimed he told them that because his mother was nearby and he didn’t want her to hear it was part of a penis pump.

He’s been charged with Felony Disorderly Conduct and faces up to three years in prison if convicted. MSNBC suggests we wonder: Which is scarier, mom or airport security?
