A Whole New Meaning To "Booby Trap"
And they laughed about underwear bombers...

Here's the article in it's entirety from FoxNews.com; Terrorists Could Use Explosives in Breast Implants to Crash Planes, Experts Warn
Plastic surgeons using explosive-laden breast implants in homicide bombers could be a new terror tactic that current airport scanning methods may miss.

Female homicide bombers are being fitted with exploding breast implants which are almost impossible to detect, British spies have reportedly discovered.

The shocking new Al Qaeda tactic involves radical doctors inserting the explosives in women's breasts during plastic surgery — making them "virtually impossible to detect by the usual airport scanning machines."

It is believed the doctors have been trained at some of Britain's leading teaching hospitals before returning to their own countries to perform the surgical procedures.

MI5 has also discovered that extremists are inserting the explosives into the buttocks of some male bombers.

"Women suicide bombers recruited by Al Qaeda are known to have had the explosives inserted in their breasts under techniques similar to breast enhancing surgery," Terrorist expert Joseph Farah claims.

The lethal explosives called PETN are inserted inside plastic shapes during the operation, before the breast is then sewn up.

The discovery of these methods was made after London-educated Nigerian Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab came close to blowing up an airliner in the U.S. on Christmas Day. He had stuffed explosives inside his underpants.

Hours after he had failed, Britain's intelligence services began to pick up "chatter" emanating from Pakistan and Yemen that alerted MI5 to the creation of the lethal implants.

A hand-picked team investigated the threat which was described as "one that can circumvent our defense." Top surgeons have confirmed the feasibility of the explosive implants.

Explosive experts allegedly told MI5 that a sachet containing as little as five ounces of PETN could blow "a considerable hole" in an airline's skin, causing it to crash.

So, does this mean I can have those surgically enhanced dancers at the strip joints across the river declared terrorists?

Great, Just Great, now not only will I feel guilty about the near occasion of sin when I see a shapley south asian woman, I will also wonder if I'm going to die--and if my mind has been enthusiastic about looking at the aformentioned lady, I will be be worrying about dieing in a state of mortal sin.

This isn't just a weapon to kill, but to demoralize us Catholic Guys as well!

OK, I just know I am gonna get in trouble for this (sorry Cavey! LOL ), but I just gotta say it:

I think for convenience's sake that we should refer to an explosive device of this type as a "bouncing Betty"
. . . or perhaps as a "bouncing Fatima?"

Great, now just because I'm well-endowed, I get frisked every time I board a plane. Crap.

I wonder how much training the security attendants are required to go through.
