Kanye West and Kim Kardashian Bypassed Security at JFK, Delaying Their Flight and Causing a TSA Investigation

Taylor Berman · 02/13/13 11:34PM

On their way back from Brazil, where they were busy posing like Jesus and partying beneath Will Smith, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West got into some trouble at JFK Airport. After their flight from Rio landed, KimYe passed through customs and then an American Airlines' employee allowed them to bypass a security checkpoint on the way to their connecting flight to LA. When the TSA realized the security breach, they forced the couple to deplane to a private area of the jetway, where they were privately screened. You know, just the way the TSA would respond if a normal couple skipped through security.

JFK Airport Workers Accused of Stealing 100,000 Mini-Bottles of Booze

Mini-bottles of booze, or airplane bottles, or, for the purpose of this post, nips are highly underrated. For one, they're inexpensive; Jim Beam should run you no more than $1.50 or so. Two, they're easy to smuggle into bars, making refilling glasses/corner chugging extra convenient. Three, they're easy to drink on the street because (or so I tell myself) everyone will just assume you're downing one of those 5-hour energy drinks. It seems as though 18 workers at JFK Airport are on my level, as they stand accused of stealing more than 100,000 of the nips from incoming American Airlines flights at JFK airport.

Being a Stranded Traveler Stinks—Literally

The worst part of being stranded at the airport due to an Icelandic volcano? It's not being trapped on the road or shut out of hotels. It's having no place to shower!
