COMMENT: Just in case you didn’t already think TSA was enough of a joke… now it’s helping catch children’s mascots.

Just in time for Easter comes the story of a Kansas clown who dresses up as a bunny and had a hassle with the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) over a basket of colorful, confetti-filled eggs.
Valerie Baul, 35, of Roeland Park, Ks., is usually in the business of making people smile as the singing and juggling “Bunny Lady,” a role for which she dons a fuzzy pink and green costume with ears.
But she wasn’t singing after an encounter with a TSA agent at Philadelphia International Airport, reports Fox 4 Kansas City.
Baul faces charges of harassment after a TSA agent inquired about the basket of eggs, which Baul says had just passed through an airport security X-ray machine.
