What a sad state of affairs

I read the opening paragraph of this joke quoted from Phil Windley. And while readying the first paragraph, I started getting my dander up because I thought it might actually be a real life occurrence.

How sad is that that arresting someone at the airport with a ruler, protractor, set square, slide rule, and calculator could be completely plausible?

That said, if you like cheesy high school math humor (of which I do) — you’ll like the joke 🙂
