Editorial Cartoon: TSA Pat Downs (again)

Editorial Cartoon: TSA Pat Down

I actually drew this one last week but it got pushed back.  It is the second of my editorial cartoons on the TSA Pat Downs.   I got to wondering, as embarrassing as it is for passengers, how must a TSA agent feel to have to grope the smelly crotch of some dude who hasn’t bathed in over a week.

And the results are in and almost 90% of you thought my latest TSA shirt design was appropriate so in honor of your votes, I present the following design available right now on the store on buttons, stickers, t-shirts etc.

    My thoughts are would people get looked at weird if you started moaning when they did do the “pat” down.

  2. Bo Lumpkin says:

    I’m just gonna save us all some embarrassment and stay home.

  3. Lynn says:

    Are you kidding me? This is genius!! ~ and it will go perfectly with the Don’t Touch My Junk shirt I just bought.

  4. Bethany says:

    Maybe if you placed or colored the hand differently (perhaps wearing a glove?) so it didn’t look like a dick at first glance.

  5. Friggin Loon says:

    I friggin support the pat downs as long as I get a male officer to do it. Hello, for some it’s the only action they’ll get 🙂

  6. nursemyra says:

    My job already requires me to grope around in smelly crotches. and I’m not even a real nurse

  7. Tony says:

    Not a job I would like to have to do. I would like to get the pat down so I could try the moaning noise suggestion

  8. Jillsy Girl says:

    I think you should do a cartoon with a transvestite being patted down. I can just imagine the facial expression on the TSA agent!! 🙂

    Nice, I have been seeing a list of things to do while the TSA Agents are down there so it is more fun for you while being groped. I only hope this mess works itself out soon.

  11. DadaHyena says:

    I love how the guy being inspected has one leg in front of the other, as if he was just walking along and got stopped in his tracks by the sudden prodding of the guard.

    That’s some great storytelling there, Bearman!

  12. Nate Fakes says:

    It makes me wonder how many creepy people took a TSA job just for the opportunity for chances like this

  13. Dan says:

    Creepiest would be people that get a ticket just for the pat down . . . then skip the flight!

  14. I have a different proposal. I propose that the passenger should be able to touch his or her own junk in front of the agent of his or her choosing.

  15. Lynn and Rip says:

    as you may already know, rip’s a huge Gawker commenter with 157 followers of his comments… he’s posting your button there with a link. 🙂

  16. Mel says:

    I wonder if they pat down children. This could cause lots of law suits.

    There has to be a better way.

    Funny pic btw 🙂

  17. George says:

    Hahaha! I see now why you made them two different ethnicities. It would have looked like the TSA guy had a trick “up his sleeve” if you didn’t. 🙂

  18. jynksie says:

    I recently traveled and had a pat down and light groin groping. I’m leaving my wife for him and we’re moving to Miami! o.O (no, not really! *smirk*)

  19. MJ says:

    Ha! It looks like the TSA is about to get an MMA knee to the head.

  20. WannabeHero says:

    Nice…. love the button!

  21. bschooled says:

    Hilarious, Bearman!

    That was the first thing I thought about when I heard the news. I just hope the airlines offer psychological counseling to their employees.

  22. Lynn and Rip says:

    remember the thing where people opposed to the gate rape were supposed to opt out and request a pat-down to bog down the system? well the mainstream propaganda reported it was a huge failure. the truth is this: all scanners were ordered shut down that day, not giving the people the chance to opt out, thus the faux news report of a failure was a lie!

  23. SpilledInkGuy says:

    Ha! Just another reason to stay locked up in my apartment. 🙂

  24. 25BAR says:

    Lol! That’s hilarious! HAHAHAHA
