Tray Stackers Association (Transportation Security Administration or TSA nickname)

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) began in 2001 under the U.S. Department of Transportation; in 2003, TSA was moved to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. TSA agents often use stacks of trays, and this is reflected in some TSA nicknames. “Tray Stackers Association” was cited on April 4, 2006, and “Tray Stackers of America” was cited on January 11, 2008.
Other TSA nicknames include “Thousands Standing Around” (since at least November 15, 2002), “Too Stupid for Arby’s” (since at least April 20, 2005), “Totally Stupid Agency/Assholes” (since at least February 3, 2006), “Tough Shit, America” (since at least March 20, 2006), “Total Sexual Assault” (since at least November 14, 2010) and “Thugs and Sexual Assailants” (since at least November 23, 2010).
Wikipedia: Transportation Security Administration
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is an agency of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security that has authority over the security of the traveling public in the United States.
The TSA was created as part of the Aviation and Transportation Security Act, sponsored by Don Young in the United States House of Representatives and Ernest Hollings in the Senate, passed by the 107th U.S. Congress, and signed into law by President George W. Bush on November 19, 2001. Originally part of the United States Department of Transportation, the TSA was moved to the Department of Homeland Security on March 9, 2003.

Pro travel tip:
Never jokingly ask airport security if TSA stands for “Tray Stackers Association.”
Those people have NO humor.

An incredibly poorly worded sign from the Tray Stackers Association.  Contradictions and lack of clarity. Typical.
