No, that's not a penis pump, Mom. Really (AP)
AP - Cook County prosecutors say a 29-year-old man traveling with his mother desperately didn't want her to know he'd packed a sexual aid for their trip to Turkey. So he told security it was a bomb, officials said.

When I read this article, I thought it was rather strange that he would tell the authority he carried a bomb, rather than make up something else. I came home to tell my wife that instead of telling the authority it was a pump, he told them it was a bomb. If it didn't have serious consequences, the story would be a bit funny.

As soon as my wife hears the story, she immediately said, "He probably said pump, but with an strong accent. So perhaps the authority heard 'bomb' rather than 'pump'."

That made a lot of sense. I now wonder if it could be a simple case of mis-communication.
