Well-endowed man gets security pat-down

A man's bulging crotch got him into trouble at the San Francisco International Airport earlier this week, as security guards thought he was hiding a suspicious object, the Huffington Post reports.

However, it turns out that Jonah Falcon wasn't weilding a weapon of mass destruction, but rather trying his best to keep the world's largest penis under control.

"I had my 'stuff' strapped to the left. I wasn't erect at the time," said Falcon, whose penis is 9 inches flaccid, 13.5 inches erect, he told the Huffington Post, and added that the security guard asked him if his pockets were empty.

They then proceeded to frisk and sprinkle white powder over the 41-year-old's package in an attempt to detect traces of explosives.

According to MailOnline, Falcon, who was also led through an X-Ray body scanner and passed a metal detector, added: "Another guard stopped me and asked if I had some sort of growth."

He aroused suspicions at San Francisco Airport on his way to New York.

"I'm just going to wear bike shorts from now on. That way, they'll know. You'd think they would have had experience with hung guys before, but I guess not."
