Pierce Brosnan Held Up At US Airport For Carrying A Knife

Pierce Brosnan Held Up At US Airport For Carrying A Knife

More like Fly Another Day! Heyoooo!

Nah, seriously, Pierce Brosnan has been held up by Transport Security Administration at Burlington International Airport, Vermont, for trying to pack a 10-inch hunting knife.

According to the Daily Mail, the 62-year old was overheard saying "I can't believe this is happening," which is exactly how I felt as I embarked on writing this story.

I can't believe they're doing this.

Again, these were Brosnan's thoughts to his 14-year-old son, Paris, hopefully as opposed to your own reaction as you scroll down this very page.

Brosnan was then seen whispering something smooth to a TSA agent (surely something like, "Maybe I'm just pleased to see you?") before his knife was promptly confiscated by officials.

For some reason, TSA regulations stipulate that all knives be banned on flights, "except for plastic butter knives."

It's been described as the worst thing to happen Brosnan since he tried to sing in Mama Mia, but thankfully he and Paris were just a little stirred, if not quite shaken, and reportedly grabbed lunch before stepping onto their flight.

You might even say they enjoyed some Bonding time.


Again, in all seriousness, the story brings to light a very pressing concern pertaining to modern society - and it's actually nothing to do with Cecil the Lion.

How scary is it that The Daily Mail now have people hanging around in airports waiting for things like this to happen?
