It’s the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, one of the busiest travel day of the year, and considering the hullabaloo surrounding the new TSA naked-scanners and overly invasive grope-downs, you might be concerned about what you’ll have to face at the airport today. To help put you at ease, here are some hints and tips from late night television.

For starters, last night’s ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ showed us an instructional video from TSA chief Joe Pistole as to what sort of touching is acceptable from airport security, so be sure to study this and be prepared.
