A crusty corpse was wheeled through the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport TSA checkpoint on Sunday. We imagine that the rest of the airport's exhausted travelers likely saw this monster and said, "same."
The #nofilter cadaver was posted on the TSA Instagram account over the weekend — it's not a real dead body, but a movie prop from the Texas Chainsaw Massacre movie, the caption reads. The "crusty ol' chap," as the TSA put it, went through the security checkpoint for screening and was "sent on his jolly way."
