They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery – but what about mockery?
It's something the TSA is battling as backlash grows regarding their pat down procedures – and they are getting the full treatment, a la Tiger Woods scandal.
No doubt there are very real concerns about the pat downs and full body scans: a flier had to show her prosthetic breast and just recently a video of a shirtless boy getting a pat down has gone viral. But that doesn't mean people are shying away from mocking the griping-about-groping issue.
From a "Saturday Night Live" skit, to a fake Twitter account and a Taiwanese animation mocking the outrage and procedure, the TSA is getting hit hard.
"SNL" couldn't shy away from the sexy side of the TSA pat downs. With music in the background that rivals the late night dating hotline treatment, "SNL" agents blow kisses, speak in porn star-esque voices and tout the full pat-down treatment.
