How many Reg columnists does it take to turn off a lightbulb?

I had a roll of sticky labels refused for carriage in a plane coming out of Dubai as it was a security risk!

I actually wanted these 'specialist' labels and, as I had time, I requested to go back to put them in as hold luggage. Fortunately a different security guard (who would have to go through the faff of escorting me back outside) decided I wasn't a nutter and ushered me through a different security area (presumably to avoid embarrassing the other chap).

Subsequently, I've found out that rolls of labels look like an "organic mass" and so often confuse/worry the x-ray scanner operators.
