Won't somebody PLEASE think of the children?!
This story hits close to home because I, too, own a Broad F*cking City shirt and hate being told what to do. However, if you don't already think that airplane security can do whatever it wants to you with zero repercussions, then you haven't noticed yourself removing your shoes, getting patted down by strangers and finally receiving a radiation blast across all your organs at the entrance of every airport in America. Turning your shirt inside out actually sounds like small potatoes after all that.
Daniel Podolsky was traveling to Chicago from Dallas when his plane had to land in the quaint, moral town of St. Louis because of emergency weather conditions. When he went to re-board his flight, he was stopped by security for wearing a shirt that sported the word, "f*cking." As this is generally considered a curse word, he was asked to change his shirt or disguise it, perhaps with a cummerbund or Ted Cruz campaign buttons. NO F*CKING WAY. And that's how he ended up on the no-fly list.
Even though this guy was inconvenienced by pearl-clutching prudes (or inconvenienced himself by making this shirt issue an issue), this is probably the greatest moment in his life. It means Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer may have actually heard of him!
