Sir, Why are There Bird Eggs in Your Pants?
Now, here’s a smuggler who really has the blues. Or whatever color these eggshells were. Associated Press tells us that custom officials at the Sydney, Australia airport found 16 wild bird eggs in the crotch of a passenger’s pants. A Czech man arrived on a flight from Dubai and was randomly picked out to have his luggage examined. And during a pat-down they found some additional luggage in the…um,…package. He’s facing a charge of importing eggs without a permit. You think they don’t take this seriously? The penalty is up to 10 years incarceration. Or maybe in this case it’s incubation. Not sure. DB
