Smuggling meat? Wrap it in diapers

Yahoo news reports that a 21-year-old South Texas women was fined $300, for smuggling chorizo from Mexico. The chorizo was hidden in diapers which appeared to be soiled.

Suspicious of the chunky diapers, inspectors with U.S. Customs and Border Protection at the international bridge in Hidalgo found several links of spicy pork sausage, or chorizo, inside. The diapers had been folded to look soiled, according to a customs agency statement.

Mmm. I don’t think I’d eat sausage that was wrapped in this.
