Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, February 12, 2014

With his trademark cowboy boots, vest and red neckerchief, Sheriff Woody from the Toy Story movies hardly looks like an imposing figure. But the cowboy doll was apparently branded a terror risk at London's Heathrow Airport -- because he was holding a miniature six-shooter. An air traveler has claimed on Reddit that the cowboy was examined at Heathrow by security staff who confiscated the doll's tiny firearm. "At Heathrow, security just confiscated his 'weapon,' keep the world safe boys," writes Reddit user Jhazen27. "The guy was not a ---- but he said unequivocally nothing that looks like a weapon of any size can go through security."

For those who didn't click on the article, the photo is of a toy revolver about the size of a man's thumb.

Anyhow, it's good to know that the U.S. doesn't have a monopoly on idiotic flight security personnel. Next up, "Sir, that toothpick looks like a miniature spear. Cuff him boys!"

At the Nuremberg trials when the defendants were asked why they did what they did, some said, because we were following orders.

That didn't fly with the court.

We are heading in that direction.

For some reason I thought it was a guy dressed up as the character and not the actual toy.

"For some reason..." because that might almost have made sense!

Woody does not have a revolver. His gun presumably was lost long ago and no official Disney licensed Woody's have guns. You can tell in the photo that the toy gun does not match the Woody toy.

You have here a guy deliberately creating discord.
