TSA puts limits on liquids, electronics and other objects, but as it turns out, they're OK with something far more strange -- and dead.

According to a tweet from a TSA Public Affairs spokesperson earlier this week, someone at the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport wheeled in a dead body prop from the Chainsaw Massacre movie.

The TSA spokesperson said it was "possibly the strangest thing at a TSA checkpoint" but nevertheless, rolled the "body" through the security scanner with other baggage.

Unfortunately, no details were available on whether the body paid for its own seat on a flight.
