Published by Anne McDermott on March 9, 2012

Your daily dose of cute:Two penguins in first class. All together now: "Awwwwwww."

TSA has the Write Stuff: We agree with Bloomberg – TSA's "Blogger Bob" is cool – but if Robert reads the nasty comments at end of their article, he'll be "Blubbering Bob."

Whoops! JFK security successfully confiscates woman's water bottle but fails to confiscate same woman's dagger.

Have a cigar: A Nigerian woman at JFK said she was pregnant but Customs found only a bouncing baby stash of heroin worth $20K.

Brit in Brazil:Shy, quiet, unassuming Prince Harry goes to Rio. What on earth will he find to do there?

2-year-old kicked off plane: Ah, tantrums. All I had to read was the complaining Mom saying, "We were holding her down with all of our might" to know JetBlue made the right call.

QuoteMaster: Ryanair's Michael O'Leary calls airports "international shopping centers" and his baby the "McDonald's of airlines." Only if Mickey D's charged for napkins.

Big stink: Woman on Southwest flight told to stop painting her nails due to awful smell. She didn't. Hope manicure held up during her 10 hours in jail.

Travel headline o' the week: "Las Vegas adult topless pool season opens." And how's your week going?
