During one secondary inspection, at Oâ€™Hare International Airport in Chicago, I was wearing under my shirt a spectacular, only-in-America device called a â€œBeerbelly,â€ a neoprene sling that holds a polyurethane bladder and drinking tube. The Beerbelly, designed originally to sneak alcoholâ€”up to 80 ouncesâ€”into football games, can quite obviously be used to sneak up to 80 ounces of liquid through airport security. … My Beerbelly, which fit comfortably over my beer belly, contained two cansâ€™ worth of Bud Light at the time of the inspection. It went undetected. The eight-ounce bottle of water in my carry-on bag, however, was seized by the federal government.
