Airport security checks your luggage, carry-on and... penis size?

Airport security never ceases to amaze me, every time I think things are getting a little wacky, I'm shown something new that makes everything I saw in the past suddenly seem logical.

Urinals at the Southwest airlines terminal at Houston's Hobby airport have a sign warning peeing passengers that:

"Automatic infrared flush sensors also provide video monitoring for security purposes"

Seriously, the department of homeland security now considers male genitalia to be a threat to national security?

Now, before I blame the department for being total idiots, I can't help feel that this entire thing is a prank, and that everyone reporting on it is part of one funny joke.

In fact, despite their track record of silly decisions, I doubt they'd do this. Obviously, someone decided to have some fun, and made some homemade stickers. If I am proven wrong, I'd be really interested to hear why the TSA is so interested in these images, and how long until we are all warned about the dangers of penis bombs.
