Even Steve Jobs Can't Bring Throwing Stars On Airplanes

Providing further proof that he’s part of an international ninja assassin squad made up of CEOs, Steve Jobs was reportedly detained at a Japanese airport for carrying a throwing star.

Bloomberg relays a report from Japan’s SPA! magazine that says Jobs was packing the weapon in his carry-on luggage in Kyoto during a “family vacation.”

Maintaining good form, an Apple spokesman denies the incident took place to Bloomberg:

“Steve did visit Japan this summer for a vacation in Kyoto, but the incidents described at the airport are pure fiction. Steve had a great time and hopes to visit Japan again soon.”
