iPod flushApple has been striking fear into more than just investors lately. An Apple iPod recently wreaked havok on airline toilet and had to be treated as a potential instrument of terror.The unfortunate iPod owner explained what happens when you lose your iPod in an airplain toilet:

First, it becomes a suspicious package. Then you have to explain to the stewardesses what happened.

Then the airline captain comes on the intercom.

“Folks, this is the captain. I don’t want to alarm you, but we’ve found a suspicious device in the front lavatory.”

What happens next isn’t pretty: the other passengers get delayed, you get interrogated, and the authorities check your laptop for pornography.

To add to the indignity of it all, you may get your iPod back:

“I just got it back from the bomb squad,” one of the detectives told the hapless owner. “It’s an iPod. Do you want it back?”

“It’s been in the toilet!”

“Yeah, it’s messy.”
