We Sincerely Hope His Case Will Be Tried by Judge Donald Thompson 

Because every week is Zemblan Smut Week:
Madin Azad Amin, 29, of Skokie, was stopped Aug. 16 at O'Hare International Airport after guards found an object in his baggage that resembled a grenade, prosecutors said.

When officers asked him to identify it, Amin said it was a bomb, said Cook County Assistant State's Attorney Lorraine Scaduto.

He later told officials he'd lied about the item because his mother was nearby and he didn't want her to hear that it was part of a penis pump, Scaduto said . . . .

Amin's attorney told a Cook County judge Wednesday that Amin whispered that the component was a "pump." The guard misunderstood, and thought he said "bomb," according to defense attorney Eileen O'Neill-Burke.

He told the Chicago Sun-Times after the hearing that security officials did not give him a chance to explain the misunderstanding, that he would never use the word "bomb" while going through a security checkpoint, and does not consider a penis pump an unusual object to own.

"It's normal," he said. "
Half of America they use it."
Dept. of Bitter Irony: at the same moment, not ten feet away, Mr. Amin's equally embarrassed mom was trying to convince customs officials that her double-headed jelly dong was in fact a set of nunchucks, and her Ben Wa balls a Venezuelan bola.
