Dublin Airport security just seized a Minion fart gun from a toddler

A deadly, deadly weapon.

WE’RE ALL WELL aware of the tyranny of Minions.

Who can forget where they were on 3 August, 2015?

Now, security at Dublin are doing their bit to slow the Minions’ bid to take over the world.

They’ve seized a Minion Fart Blaster from a toddler who was attempting to bring it onto a plane. The blaster emits a banana-like scent.


A spokesperson for Dublin Airport confirmed to that the toy had been seized, as the airport’s list of prohibited items forbids any kind of replica gun. Even a fart gun.

The spokesperson said that security procedures are audited internally as well as externally by two separate bodies “so we have to apply a consistent approach”.

The toy will be kept for the child so it can be collected on the way back home.

You lose this time, Minions. We remain vigilant.
