(Newser) – Afraid of the people at airport security using their scary full-body scanner to see you naked? Well then the people at FlyingPasties.com have just the product for you. Just slap some peace sign stickers over your private parts, and presto: Instant peace of mind! The stickers won't actually protect you from the machine's radiation, the site warns, but hey, you'll have your dignity.

But Jaunted.com is highly skeptical. The site doesn't actually mention what amazing technology these things use—they look like normal stickers, ill equipped to thwart a scanner that can see through several layers of clothing. Second, these guys don't seem to grasp that the image the scanners produce doesn't actually look like a soft-core-ready naked body. "Flying Pasties don't belong on your body," the site concludes, "they belong on FAILBlog."
