Ever wanted to be an airport security agent?Now, thanks to the TSA instagram account, you can see all the crazy stuff they confiscate off passengers.

On the Instagram account, run by Transport Security Administration (TSA) in the US, there really is anything and everything from shuriken (throwing stars) to key knives and hand grenades.


The account was set up almost a year ago and has attracted a following due to the fantastic nature of its posts and its sassy tone.

There are also cute pictures of the sniffer dogs amongst the massive litiany of explosive devices and weapons.


The pictures are supposed to place emphasis on the effectiveness of airport security.
