Today's J. Post cartoon

Yes, it's an idea that's been done before--security at airports tightening to the point of passengers having to strip naked has been a political cartoon staple for years--but I brought to this one the twist of showing the progression of restrictions: no shoes after Richard Reid, no liquids after Ahmed Abdullah Ali et al... and now, possibly, no clothes after Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab hid explosives in his underwear (specifically, the crotch)? Who knows?
UPDATE: This was picked up by the JOSHUAPUNDIT blog and then featured on several affiliated sites, as well as separately on a Brazilian blog. BTW Joshua, it's not just the Israelis making a joke out of it...
UPDATE 2: With the new TSA full-body scanners, this joke has turned out to be ramerkably prescient.

Drawn using:
No. 2 pencil (sketch)
Black 0.7 mm pilot pen

  1. LOL! With those airport xray scanners, I think we're already at the naked stage!
