Here's Why You Should Follow The TSA On Instagram

If you weren't already aware, the TSA has an Instagram account and it's crazy. Chock-full of all the ridiculous (and scary) banned items you could ever think of, let's just say that it's definitely worth a "follow."

Even though the TSA gets a pretty bad rep for its slow service and mundane requests, we're pretty happy these fireworks, brass knuckles and assortment of medieval weapons didn't make it onto the plane with us.

Here are 10 of the TSA's most intriguing confiscated items:

1. This dagger.
