Bea Arthur

Bea Arthur
comedienne or mad bomber?

Beloved TV actress Bea Arthur of Golden Girls and Maude fame got a bit wacky at Boston's Logan airport last week, setting off a security scare when a Transportation Security Administration security official found a pocketknife in her purse. According to a report on, the 81-year-old actress went a bit off:

"She started yelling that it wasn't hers and said 'The terrorists put it there,' " a fellow passenger said. "She kept yelling about the 'terrorists, the terrorists, the terrorists.' "

After the blade was confiscated, Arthur took a keyring from her bag and told the agent it belonged to the "terrorists," before throwing it at them.

As she boarded the plane, she told the TSA employees, "We're all doomed."

A spokeswoman for Cape Air says, "Miss Arthur was cracking jokes and was a real character."
Funny stuff. Just remember, if you are not an Emmy-winning TV star, all jokes about terrorism, bombs and such are likely to be taken seriously, so don't go there.
