What government agency has the punniest Instagram account?

Answer: You never would have guessed the TSA, would you?

“Funny” and “government agency” probably aren’t two words you would expect to go together, unless you’ve spent time on the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District’s Twitter account. But they’re not the only government agency bringing in the laughs on social media.

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA), usually a source of endless frustration in airports around the country, has an Instagram account with over 1 million incredibly diverse followers. Why? It’s one of the funniest travel-related accounts out there (and that’s not a low bar).

A “Princess of Puns,” “Teller of Travel Tips” and “Admirer of Alliteration,” the account “posts odd finds, information about what you can and cannot bring through TSA, and travel-related answers to questions we may get,” per TSA Social Media Branch Manager Janis Burl. Chock full of puns and some very weird things people have tried to take on planes (a cat, really?), its posts drew 54 million users to the page last year alone.

You just have to check it out for yourself.
