Security dude - "Is that all?"
Moses - "Yeah, but they're bugs... Edible bugs."
We did receive a weird look from security... But they allowed us to take them through.
The shuttle was ready for us... And the driver... Was friggin huge. Not fat (well, maybe he was a little heavy on the hips), but overall, the guy was a friggin unit... That looked suspiciously like the Walrus from Alice ...
