'Bunny' Cracks Up Egg, Not TSA Agent: MyFoxPHILLY.com

PHILADELPHIA, April 8 (UPI) -- A Kansas woman said she is scheduled for a court date in Philadelphia after she opened a confetti-filled plastic egg over an airport security agent's head.

Val Baul, a former radio DJ and traveling clown known locally in Roeland Park, Kan., as the "Bunny Lady," said a Transportation Security Administration agent confronted her about her confetti-filled eggs after she had already been through security at Philadelphia International Airport during Valentine's Day weekend in February, WDAF-TV, Kansas City, Mo., reported Thursday.

"She wasn't investigating my eggs, I had already been through the X-ray machine (with no problems)," said Baul, who commonly dresses in a pink bunny suit and performs for special events. "She said, 'What are those?' and I said, 'Well, they're eggs filled with confetti.'"

Baul said she proved her point by opening one of the eggs over the agent's head, causing confetti to rain down on the other woman. Baul said she "didn't think anything of it," but the TSA agent took her to the airport's jail, where she was held for 3 hours.

Baul said she must now return to Philadelphia in September to face a misdemeanor harassment charge.
