Can you blame 'em?

Border cops nab cheese smuggler

PHOENIX, Arizona (Reuters) - Puzzled U.S. border police arrested a Mexican smuggler with 88 pounds (40-kg) of cheese hidden in a special compartment in his truck, police said on Friday.
Officers using an X-ray machine saw the outline of 16 bulky packages stashed in a secret compartment behind the seat, which they initially believed were packets containing illicit drugs.

"Generally if you see something (with the X-ray machine) you expect it to be narcotics, but this turned out to be cheese," Maier told Reuters by telephone.


Now, all I ask is that my many cheese-obsessed friends (you know who you are!) let me know they’re OK. For all I know, you were part of this international plot and are now huddled in the corner of a tiny Mexican prison asking Bonita (that was for you H), a very large Mexican prostitute, to shut up and leave you alone.

K, you’re a prime suspect for obvious reasons.

Do note: I am ok.

I strongly condone this type of behavior, I say the more cheese we have in this country, the better. Fling open the borders, I say. Let all the cheese who wish to enter this country, come on in! I will welcome you with open arms.

Thank you, dear cheese smuggler, for trying to bring more cheesy goodness to the USA.

I just hope the cheese smuggler had proper refrigeration and storage of the cheese!

So what is cheese going for now on the streets? $10 a bag?
