I'm not going to go into the meat of the Denver Post article where the above image appears, describing a defiant TSA Chief John Pistole's appearance before Congress wherein he stood by TSA's naked scanners and "pat-downs".
Caption contest, anyone? I'll start with a couple. Add your two cents!:
LCR on the TSA offical as played by Senator Larry Craig:
"Thank God, after Congress, I never thought I would have such a satisfying job again..."LCR on the Poor Traveler being groped:
"Uh, dude, even my wife hasn't done that in years...."LCR on the TSA official:
Now I know why the TSA immediately hired me when I filled in the little bubble next to, "were you formally a proctologist?"Sara in Italy opines:

"Is that my hand in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me? "Reader Ryan taking the role of TSA Agent:
"Turn your head and cough!"Smitty from The Other McCain opines from a bunker in Afghanistan:
"The TSA inspector, sadly, confirms the Helen Thomas rumor."Reader Snide Atheist (also proving this is not a left/right issue) on the TSA inspector:

"Hmm, you don't feel like you're late for a flight!"Reader Mike takes the James Herriot role for the TSA agent (gross):

"I used to do this at the adult movie theaters."Justin offers a fitting TSA public service announcement:
"To reaffirm our commitment to customer service, all TSA security checks now include a complimentary "happy ending.""Conservative Generation thinks of a back and forth:
Guard: "Let me zip that up for you. There."
Passenger: "I don't mind you cupping my crotch, but do you need to hum as well?"D.Eris from PolitTea channels the Toe-tapper as well:
"What was once only available in private airport bathroom stalls now available at public screening areas."Alan as the TSA Agent (or, possibly, the traveler):
"I just want you to know I think it's OK if we still see other people. Call me, though."Leslie Eastman, Temple of Mut:

"You called your doctor after four hours of that??"Shane Atwell:
"Mmmm mmmmmhmm mmmmmm oooooo mmmmmmm aaaaaayeeaaah. Ok you can go."Barrel Rider:

This isn't the job I envisioned when I was hired as a "Baggage Handler"
