Don't let the door grope you on the way out

The lesser-known cousin of the Impossibly Stupid Seal of Approval is the Impossibly Stupid Hat of Fuckheadery. It is awarded to people and organizations that decide to go that extra step and cross the line from genius to insanity.

The TSA is this week's winner.

There are really so many things they've done wrong recently, and mishandled the public outcry about, that it seems only a matter of time before they're dissolved. Has anyone started a pool, yet? I've got $14 just burning a hole in my pocket for an RIP in mid-to-late 2011.

Update: Bruce Schneier also now has an excellent summary of TSA abuse of power.
