TSA Agents In Boston Screen Lobster And Allow It To Fly

Do you want to know what the TSA agent did? Pose for a photo with the lobster and put it on Twitter. It turns out, live lobsters are allowed as long as they're in clear, spill-proof containers. This one was in a cooler and caused no trouble, TSA said. As my colleague Amy Held wrote yesterday, who knew TSA had a specific lobster clause? It's MORNING EDITION.
