Stupid Questions at the Airport

I was at the airport, checking in at the gate when an airport employee asked:

"Has anyone put anything in your baggage without your knowledge?"

To which I replied, "If it was without my knowledge, how would I know?"

He smiled knowingly and nodded, "That's why we ask."
