Singing TSA agents serenade passengers
VIDEO | By USAToday.com
Traveling through Los Angeles this holiday season? You may get a holiday tune with your enhanced pat-down.
USA Today reports that a group of 17 singers and musicians -- all of them Transportation Security Administration security screeners -- are surprising passengers with holiday performances while they stand in line.
And before you start claiming "taxpayer waste" -- remember that members of the LAX TSA Choir volunteer their time and practice on their time off.
The group also performs patriotic music on Veterans Day and Memorial Day.
UPDATE: Oh gosh, those Taiwanese animators who poke fun at the news have drawn up their own singing TSA agents. (Warning: It's not the nicest, or classiest production.)
