Tell a joke; go to jail

I've been away at conferences this week. Early in the week I flew to Illinois. After returning, I immediately left again, this time for Lake Arrowhead. Both conferences were about complex systems. The reason for this blog post, though, is much less serious.

On my way through the security screening system at the airport, I saw a sign that warned passengers that joking with the security personnel about the possibility of bringing a bomb on the plane is a federal crime punishable by prison time.

I wonder if I would have gotten in trouble had I attempted to take a picture of that sign. I now wish I had taken my camera out and tried.
