Man with World's Biggest Penis has Run-in with TSA Officers
Jonah Falcon, the man with the world's largest penis, was stopped and frisked by the TSA at the San Francisco International Airport on July 9 because of a bulging package hidden in his pants.
Jonah Falcon, 41, who has been featured in several documentaries about the world’s biggest penises, was returning from a trip in San Francisco on July 9 when he was stopped at security by TSA agents who spotted something out of the ordinary hanging to the left in his pants, he said.
When he replied that it was just his penis, they “checked the area around it” but didn’t frisk him too severely, he said. They also wiped his hands to check for explosive powder.
Falcon said the delay was mostly amusing to him and only delayed him for about 5 minutes. He said it was the first time his penis had caused a security concern.
“I”ve gone through the (airport scanner) before, and I wasn’t worried,” he said. “What was the worst that was going to happen — I was going to have to whip it out for them? I’m used to that. Sometimes when people ask me about it, if I’m feeling up to it, I’ll just show them.”
Falcon’s penis has been reported as 9.5 inches when flaccid and 13.5 inches when erect, according to Rolling Stone. He has been featured in documentaries on HBO and overseas. He works as a video game journalist and as an actor with small roles in movies and television shows, according to his Internet Movie Database profile.
The Guinness Book of World Records does not record such feats, but his 'family jewel' was hailed as the world's largest on record after an HBO documentary featured him in 1999.
Portland's "Naked American Hero"
Meanwhile in Portland, John Brennan stripped naked in front of a TSA agent in a unique protest. He called it the 'irony of stripping naked for personal privacy". John Brennan was charged with indecent exposure after the incident, but Brennan said he stripped only after he refused to walk through a scanner and security agents found traces of nitrates on his clothes.
A judge found Brennan not guilty of public indecency on the grounds that he stripped naked as a form of protest, which is protected speech.
But things aren’t over for Brennan yet. The TSA is also investigating him to see if he possibly interfered with the screening process. If found guilty, he could be forced to pay an $11,000 fine and be put on the no-fly list.
