Brilliant TSA interigation in Greensboro, NC

I kid you not, I just got asked by a TSA agent: "What's this?" as she removed a mechanical pencil from my carry-on bag. 

"It's a pencil", I said.

She then says, "What's it for?" 

I was stunned for a moment before I answered, "It's for pencily things". 

Yes, I feel safe flying today. Oh wait, we are under threat level orange and the pencil IS orange.

To be fair, it is a fancy new Zebra mechanical pencil that looks just like a #2 wood pencil, but what did she think it was for?
