A novelty toy dog which breaks wind sparked a major security alert at an American airport. Page designer Dave Rogerson's life-size mechanical terrier set off a security detector at Norfolk Airport in Virginia. Armed security staff were alerted when the toy's wind-breaking mechanism registered as a high explosive on sensitive monitoring equipment. Mr Rogerson, 31, from Thorner, Leeds, was questioned by FBI agents and looked on in amazement as they took a series of swabs from the mechanical toy's rear end. The toy animal was eventually returned to him, but he was not allowed to take his planned flight and had to take an alternative route to North Carolina. Mr Rogerson said: "There's no humour at American check-ins and for about 20 minutes I was quite scared. "They told me it is the highest reading they had for explosives and they took it very seriously. "They were very jumpy and convinced there was something explosive in the dog." Eventually the FBI experts decided the toy was harmless and returned it to him. He has now named the toy dog Norfolk after the airport.
-------------------- You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers
