This really cracked me up.
Apparently, an airport security agent in Frankfurt asked a musician to take his saxophone out of the case and play it.
I guess it’s the agent’s opportunity to hear some live music for free.
But apparently, the agent isn’t so much of a fan of the more free flowing style of jazz. (Maybe he was expecting Kenny G?)
