You would think most people by now would know what they can and cannot bring through TSA at the airport, but it turns out people still don't know either the liquid limit or that they can't bring a chainsaw through the airport!

TSA just released its top confiscated items for 2021 from every airport in the US and DCA made the list this year because somebody tried to bring a machete through security at some point in 2021.

While we made the list this year, we only came in fourth and it's actually Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport that took this year's wildest item to get to TSA because someone brought a chainsaw to the airport!

You can see the top ten items below and it might be best just to leave these things at home:

  1. Chainsaw, Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport
  2. Wine holder (shaped like a firearm), Sacramento International Airport
  3. Fireworks, Syracuse Hancock International Airport
  4. Machete, Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport
  5. Bear spray, Destin-Fort Walton Beach Airport
  6. Cleaver, Harrisburg International Airport
  7. Firearm buckle, Daniel K. Inouye International Airport
  8. Meth burrito, Houston William P. Hobby International Airport
  9. Pistol, Newark Liberty International Airport
  10. Bullets in deodorant, Atlantic City International Airport
