'Saturday Night Live' TSA Skit: Go Ahead, Touch My Junk

In the wake of Don't Touch My Junk and the increasing number of reports about intrusive TSA pat-downs, it's getting difficult to find anything lighthearted to say about airport security measures.

Sometimes, though, you just have to laugh at the absurdity of it all, and that's what this great SNL skit is for. Modeled after phone sex ads, the spoof commercial features lumpish TSA agents snapping on rubber gloves and offering to give you "a little extra to feel thankful for this holiday season."

"What are you waiting for?" Bobby Moynihan asks. "I want to check under your testicles."

If you're going to be traveling this week, don't forget to put your 3.4-oz liquids inside a 1-quart clear plastic bag, remove your shoes and belt, separate your laptop, allow your children to have their clothes removed by strangers, and you might want to choose tampons over sanitary napkins ... but first enjoy this video, the humorous version of the decidedly unfunny reality.
