TSA advertises for workers on pizza boxes

A report at the link below asks:

Looking for a personal scan pizza?

The Transportation Security Administration is trying a new tack to fill a slew of screener positions -- advertising on pizza boxes.

"A Career Where X-Ray Vision and Federal Benefits Come Standard," screams a TSA ad appearing on pizza boxes popping up across the Washington, D.C., region.

"See yourself in a vital role for Homeland Security," plead the advertisements.

TSA spokesman Greg Soule said the method was intended to reach a "broader applicant pool." He declined to say how much the agency was spending on the campaign.

A Pizza box seems a strange place to advertise for someone to do enhanced pat downs.

Maybe they should try ads on matchbook covers placed in massage parlors.
