Ooooh! even better!

"An Australian traveler was caught with two live pigeons stuffed in his pants following a trip to the Middle East, customs officials said Tuesday."* And you thought you were having a bad day! "They found the pigeons wrapped in padded envelopes and held to each of the man's legs with a pair of tights, according to a statement released by the agency. Officials also seized seeds in his money belt and an undeclared eggplant."* They also found two eggs in a vitamin container! This offense could end up costing him close to $70,000.

Now the only question I have is, what exactly was he going to do with the eggplant?

Ok~ so don't they have enough pigeons in Australia, mate? (Personally, I think a man wearing tights is more dangerous than pigeons!)What kind of seeds?*wink wink* I'll let you have the eggplant, but were the eggs still in their shells or were they 'ready for fryin'?
Now that I think about this, he was probably just a fancy chef bringing home the goods for a special squab and eggplant parmesan dish topped of with 'pinenuts'.
That's my story and I'm stickin to it! :~}
