Leaving on a Jet Plane - With Fudge

Last weekend a friend and I made 9 x 13 pans of wonderful fudge.

Today I tried to take it through security at the airport.

When you take two ends of a 9 x 13 pan of fudge and stick them right on top of each other wrapped in wax paper and put them in your carry-on - they become "notable" per the TSA.
(Might look like a block of explosives.)

When I went through security they said "There is something noteable in this bag."  
They took me by the elbow, led me and my bag to the area for further security screening.
I looked at him and said "It's just fudge." 
They took my bag apart piece by pice, inspected the wax wrapped fudge "four" different times.  Ran it thru the x-ray machine 3 times. 

And I kept saying "It's just fudge."

If they would let me take a knife through security - I would have brought a knife and "cut them off" a nice piece of fudge.

The moral of the story - it you want your cooking to get noticed - just take it through TSA.

From a kiosk outside the TSA station at the airport - I had to write -
Merry Christmas to all - and to all a good night.
