Crab claws as weapons?? I made a big pot of gumbo and froze it in advance of my Christmas trip to Los Angeles; I knew our schedule was going to be hectic there, but I want seafood gumbo at Christmas. Our flight was at the crack of dawn, and non-stop, so I wrapped up the frozen gumbo and carefully packed it into my suitcase on the way out the door to the airport. I travel a lot, and know what I can and can't get through security, so imagine my surprise when my bag was pulled off and I was waved to the side. "Ma'am, do you have any sharp objects in your bag?" The agent started unzipping my bag as I'm thinking furiously... "I don't think so... there are crab claws frozen in my gumbo..." and that was it. The crab claws showed up on X-ray as stabbity weapons... The agents all laughed and waved me on. The gumbo was delicious.
