An Erlanger (Kentucky) lawyer and blogger believes his new business has a solution for those wanting to protect their modesty without making a scene while going through full body scanners at airports.
Marcus Carey, who lives in Owen County and blogs at BluegrassBulletin.com, started an apparel line in mid-December that sells clothing with strategically placed patriotic emblems made of special ink he claims will blur out a person’s private parts on the image of the scanner.
ScannerShirts.com offers women’s shirts with stars over the nipples and children’s shirts with emblems at the bottom, over the genitals. Briefs and boxers with U.S. or eagle-themed logos in front are also sold on the site.
Carey said the recipe for the ink is a trade secret but says it blurs the x-ray image of what’s underneath.
Well, they can just cancel my application to operate the x-ray machine!!
