It's the new battle cry of travelers fed up with the far-reaching powers of authority in charge, in this case the TSA
Coined by John Tyner, a 31-year-old California man who objected to a full body "pat down" by a TSA
security man in San Diego not to touch his package
before boarding a flight. He also happened to be recording the incident with his cell phone.
"If you touch my junk, I'll have you arrested," said the 31 year old Californian.
After he shared his recording online, it went viral and now has become a catch-phrase in the tradition of Don't tase me, bro.
Don't touch my junk.
word of the day: November 22, 2010
Infamous, now viral, phrase uttered by John Tyner of Oceanside after refusing to be subjected to an airport body scanner and subsequent thorough pat down.
Can also be used in any social setting where you just want people to stop bothering you with uninteresting things.
TSA - "Sir, we need to pat you down..."
JT - "Don't touch my junk
Boring friend- "Hey man, you want to see these slides from my family summer vacation?"
JT - Don't touch my junk!"
Phrase every American traveling through an airport should utter before being screened by security so the TSA will start harassing people who actually look like real terrorists.
Screener: "I'm going to pat you once on the inner thigh, twice on the ass, three times on your belly button, and then finally stick four fingers and some jelly in yer bunghole, alright honey? If you're uncomfortable with that we can head over to the janitor room right there and do a quick private thingy, k puddin'?"
Passenger: "Do whatchu gotta do, but don't touch my junk or I'll have you arrested."
A stern warning to TSA gropers to not touch John Tyner's penis or balls when told he was about to undergo a "groin check".
Don't touch my junk. If you touch my junk, I'm going to have you arrested. -- John Tyner, San Diego Airport, November 13, 2010
When one passes through airport security - phrase to agent not to touch certain body parts!
