Great moments in airport security

I get to the first security guy at the Omaha airport. He's an older gentleman, and is looking down as I approach his desk. I hand him my boarding pass and drivers' license. He goes through the boarding pass thoroughly, then checks the ID to see that the name matches. He gets to the photo, and is quite visibly startled.

Then he looks up, and his jaw drops. "You have purple hair!"
