You can't say bomb on an airplane

Man describes "explosive" BBQ rub, booted off plane, arrested

A man traveling through Memphis International Airport found out the hard way. There are some things you don't joke about.

A passenger on a Delta flight to Salt Lake City yesterday was arrested after airport security officials say he described the liquids he was carrying as "explosive."

"He referred to the substance in his bag as being explosive, a BBQ rub. Using the term explosive is not one that is advisable even in a joking manner," said Scott Brockman with the Airport Authority.

The flight was delayed about an hour.

The not-so-funny passenger stayed a little while longer, so police and F.B.I. agents could question him.

He was later released.
