OMG! Exploding Boobs!

“Terrorism experts” are warning of a new threat: Fake boobs packed with explosives.

Radical Islamist plastic surgeons could be carrying out the implant operations in lawless areas of Pakistan, security sources are said to warned.

Explosives experts have reportedly said just five ounces of Pentaerythritol Tetrabitrate packed into a breast implant would be enough to blow a “considerable” hole in the side of a jumbo jet.

You thought backscatter X-Ray was bad? Just wait until you have to stand in line for the official TSA boob examiner!

It would be virtually possible for airport security scanners to detect the explosive if hidden inside a breast, medics have said.

Joseph Farah, a terrorism expert, told The Sun: “Women suicide bombers recruited by al-Qaeda are known to have had the explosives inserted in their breasts under techniques similar to breast enhancing surgery.”

Plastic surgeons may also have inserted the chemical into the buttocks of would-be suicide bombers.

What a load of crap. This is just another movie plot scenario. There are any number of ways to get a bomb on a plane, ALL of them easier than exploding boobs.

I call bullshit.

  1. I originally had the same reaction. I thought to myself, what a silly bunch of BS. Then I called my best friend who is an EOD (bomb diffuser) guy and told him about it. I asked if that was far fetched.

    Then he thought about it for ten seconds, decided that it was brilliant, came up with half a dozen different ways to detonate it depending on the mission, and what composition he would use, and how this was the neatest idea since sliced bread. ( keep in mind that bomb guys are strange )

    So apparently it is actually feasible. Weird, but feasible.

    2nd, Feasible doesn’t mean it’s not still BS.

    Movie plot scenarios are a dime a dozen and boob bombs definitely fall into that category.

    Yet another reason (after the body scanners) for perverts to go into the TSA. All the job perks they could want.

  4. I swear to God if I end up getting groped at the airport in the name of security, I will raise a fit, flight and consequences be damned.
