Re: Just when you thought it could not get any worse

This part:

CBP says on a typical day it "welcomes nearly 1 million visitors, screens more than 67,000 cargo containers, arrests more than 1,100 individuals, and seizes nearly 6 tons of illicit drugs."

Holy smokes!!!!

I was hoping to read something along the lines that this particular smuggler was caught because he was 'nipped' hard and heavy in the groin area.....

Re: Just when you thought it could not get any worse

With apologies to Mae West, may she rest in peace and not turn over in her grave:

"Is that a macaw in your pants, or are you just happy to see me?"

Nothing surprises me anymore.

"Nothing is ever foolproof because fools are so ingenious."

Nipped hard and plucked clean!

Bird smuggling is so despicable because the loss rate is so high.

I couldn't resist . I didn't mean to sound insensitive but as sad as it is, I know this sort of animal abuse is nothing new (just the location is new).
