Paul Kenyon was trying to fly to the U.S., but while filling out a visa waiver form, accidentally clicked "yes" on a question that asked "Do you seek to engage in or have you ever engaged in terrorist activities, espionage, sabotage, or genocide?"
As a result, Kenyon's 3-month old grandson was called into the U.S. Embassy for an interview. Yes...really. Kenyon seemed to be in good spirits about the mix-up, saying "He’s obviously never engaged in genocide, or espionage, but he has sabotaged quite a few nappies in his time." [Mashable]
