But in a recent video shared on Twitter showing the ten strangest items confiscated in 2018, it's safe to say the TSA has found some odd things in travelers' luggage.
Along with knives and hatchets, the list included a live snake, a fake time-bomb, and tuxedo painted hand grenades.
Number one on the list was a Freddy Krueger glove, complete with finger knives identical to the one used in the "Nightmare on Elm Street" films.
