“If you think it’s funny to make a joke while you’re going through security, don’t be a clown. They will pull you to the side,” said Murphy. “I know people who have made a joke about bombs and really stupid things. They get pulled out, they get questioned and sometimes they get arrested.”

“Until they can sort through whether or not you’re serious, you aren’t going anywhere.”

Later, Murphy shares his thoughts on Abigail Disney’s take on her family’s namesake theme parks before diving into some end-of-summer travel tips.

“Brexit has brought the value of the dollar up so much against the pound. It’s over a 30-year high now. If you ever thought about going to Great Britain and enjoying that fantastic experience, go ahead and take a look,” he added. “Airfare is dirt cheap. Google Flights is great if you’re flexible. Just look out over the next two to three months.”
