Boy, that TSA sure does love to poke its nose into
your luggage! Get 'em
every time with our latest gag: The Unrecloseable
It looks just like a normal suitcase, except it comes
with a built-in
memory foam mattress, encased in an airtight plastic
bag. The foam is
low density, so it rapidly expands to many
times its size when
exposed to air.
To close the suitcase, simply close the valve on the
then attach a vacuum cleaner to the suction port on
the suitcase. As the
air is sucked out, the mattress shrinks to an easily
foldable size. Simply
tuck it inside the case, ensuring that the bag valve is
placed into the
valve port on the suitcase.
Close the suitcase up, and open the bag valve (both
the valve and the vacuum port
can be locked once they are primed
to prevent spoiling the fun). The next person to
open the suitcase will
be in for
quite a surprise.

||Sadly, I doubt it would bother them much. They would have to care to get bothered.
||They would probably sleep on the damn thing.
||A simple version could be your actual suitcase that
unlocks itself 1/2 second after being locked. This
gives the TSA hope, but never success.
||//They would have to care to get bothered.//
||True, but they still have to /deal/ with it.
||After the third try (to close) it could light on fire.
||This becomes the point where they simply hand it
back to you to deal with, and you get to take a cab
to your destination.
