The TSA is get­ting floppy eared dogs be­cause they’re less scary

Red Eye Chicago - - Cheat Sheet -

Democrats, Repub­li­cans — ev­ery­one can agree that the worst gov­ern­ment agency is the Trans­porta­tion Se­cu­rity Ad­min­is­tra­tion. But the ol’ TSA wants you to know that it can be friendly, too! That’s why they’re go­ing to get some new ex­plo­sive-sniff­ing dogs who have cud­dlier, flop­pier ears. The agency says peo­ple are less threat­ened by floppy eared dogs than by pointy eared dogs. The TSA trains seven breeds of dogs, five of which have floppy ears.
