Apparently Heathrow Airport is cracking down on terrorism… whilst linking it to crimes of fashion. TRAVESTY, UR MAJESTY!

BobbleboT is angry with paranoid humanoids. ANGRY! This is species-ism! When will humans learn that ROBOTS ARE THEIR FRIENDS??? (…until, that is, they take over the world.)

Interesting bit o news from ze world via Daily Mail:

Man threatened with arrest at Heathrow for wearing Transformers T-shirt

An airline passenger claimed that a security guard threatened to arrest him because he was wearing a T-shirt showing a cartoon robot with a gun.

Brad Jayakody, 30, from London, said he was stopped from passing through security at Heathrow’s Terminal 5 after his Transformers T-shirt was deemed ‘offensive.’

The IT consultant was set to fly off on a business trip to Dusseldorf in Germany when he was pulled to one side.

OMFRAKKINGZ! Are u KIDDING me? Uh, apparently NOT.

Apparently this shirt is the face of terrorism. Or maybe because it’s been lovingly draped over a brown body. Careful, stalkers! I spy with my robotic eyes a wedding ring. MARRIAGE, can we not ESCAPE it?!

Mr Jayakody said the first guard started joking with him about the Transformers character depicted on his French Connection T-shirt.

Ahahahaha! Good one, Mr. Jayakody!

::shakes head::

‘”Then he explains that since Megatron is holding a gun, I’m not allowed to fly,’ he said.


Uh… apparently TOO good…

‘It’s a 40ft tall cartoon robot with a gun as an arm. There is no way this shirt is offensive in any way, and what I’m going to use the shirt to pretend I have a gun?

He was cooperative with the supervisor and took off the the ‘offensive’ T-shirt, replacing it with another shirt in his carry on luggage.

A spokesman for Heathrow operator BAA said: ‘If a T-shirt had a rude word or a bomb on it, for example, a passenger may be asked to remove it.

‘We are investigating what happened to see if it came under this category.

‘If it’s offensive, we don’t want other passengers upset.’

He said there was no record of the incident and the passenger ‘certainly didn’t make a formal complaint at the time.’

Yes, this is how they keep Brown people and robots in CHECK. They gonna start instilling new dress codes at ze airport? No leftist slogan tees? The banning of Gundam and Transformers tees???! What about Thundercats??! Would Thundercats pass the screening?!!! INSANITY!

Optimus Prime would concur.
