Having to Live with "United Breaks Guitars"

Nerissa and Katryna Nields just sent out a long update detailing in stories and pictures their trip to Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, for the Lunenburg Folk Harbour Festival. As a postscript -- not a Postrcypt, mind you -- Nerissa added:
When we arrived at customs this morning to leave Canada, the flight attendant made me sign a waiver for my guitar, which I checked. I joked, "So this is so if United Breaks My Guitar I can't sue you."

"Interesting you should bring that up," she said drily. "I was the attendant who took that guitar from the guy who wrote that song. And it was in a soft case, not a hard one like yours here."
Ouch... Wonder how often that comes up?
