QOTD: Security Theater

Over at Volokh, there is a thread relating to TSA Security Theater. In the comments (always a good read at Volokh), is this gem from "SG":
My preferred screening policy for Islamic terrorists is to put out a plate of bacon. Anyone who takes a piece can go through without further hassle. Anyone who passes up the bacon gets extra screening. It’s win-win — the Islamists self-identify and everybody else gets free bacon.

I realize it will raise some false positives with vegetarians, but I figure that’s OK — I don’t trust those folks either.
Can I get an "Amen!"?

You'll also get false-positive from kosher jews. Just saying. :D

Yeah, but that's what the further screening will reveal. 'Course, they might scream discrimination, especially the anti-American Jews, like Schumer, Feinstein, and Boxer. And this could become a "yellow star" situation if we're not careful.
