TSA agents are used to seeing some odd things passing through security, but one piece of creepy cargo at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport was definitely unexpected.
The fake zombie corpse, which TSA identified as a prop from a horror movie, was photographed being wheeled through security before being slipped through the conveyer belt.
Security appeared to have a ball over the dummy's big adventure while sharing photos to Instagram Monday.
"Talk about deadheading," they posted, using a term used to describe a passenger or cargo that travels for free. "This crusty ol' chap is actually a prop from the Texas Chainsaw Massacre movie."
Though the caption did not specify which of the "Chainsaw" movies, the prequel "Leatherface" is slated for release this year. Perhaps this guy makes a cameo.
The security agency went on to say that the prop, which appeared to be suffering from extreme burns or decay, was "screened and sent on his jolly way."
That "jolly" screening is unlike the experience many airline passengers have had lately, with the TSA at O'Hare and Midway airports asking travelers this week to arrive three hours before their departure in anticipation of horribly long security lines. But that's a horror story for another time.
