Oh for crying out loud you friggin drug dealing crims, how desperate do you have to be to get someone to send you a children’s coloring books saturated in narcotic drugs to the Cape May County Correctional Center? Hmm,quite. Who knew Suboxone could be turned into a paste and plonked onto the pages of a kiddies book. Well the correctional officers for starters. The package sent to the inmate was addressed “To Daddy” and featured drawings of Cinderella and Snow White. It fooled no one and now five inmates have new charges on their resumes!
OK, here’s the thing Nantucket man, don’t be smuggling no sperm whale teeth into the country because that’s a federal offence. Hello, sperm whale teeth are endangered! Dear god, what the hell would you do with one? Hmm, not like you could wear it as a pendant!
Oh for crying out loud, a Cambodian woman has been busted for smuggling a tiger’s penis into New Zealand (and no, there isn’t a golf tournament on!). The woman, who had just arrived from Singapore, was singled out by sniffer dogs and a search later revealed she had a tiger’s penis and a gall badder tied around her waist and also in a plastic bag around her leg. Sheez, seems the highly rare and endangered tiger’s penis could fetch a small fortune on the black market (ain’t that the truth Elin). Anywho, if tests prove that the dried up, wrinkly thing belongs to a real endangered species she could be fined $100,000 and/or 5 years jail.

OK, the judge didn’t really buy the story but he was overly lenient because she has 11 kids and is mentally ill.
Psst Where would you even start looking to find monkey meat?
