Is That a Pigeon In Your Pants, Or Are You Just Happy To See Me? February 3, 2009

Ok readers, admit it – You’ve either packed the suitcase yourself or witnessed this luggage being unpacked at your parents’/uncle’s/aunt’s house. You know what I’m talking about – those bags full of goodies from the Middle East surrounded  by rolled up socks and fanellas :-P.

Sometimes you just have to bring back your grandmother’s zaatar mix because that imported crap just won’t cut it. Or you bring back some dried mint leaves grown in your family’s backyard or the dried mlukheieh (both unfortunately resembling some other dried up plant…), or your favorite nut mix in that brand you can’t even find in NYC or Dearborn…or heck, sometimes you even say screw it, I’m bringing back that dang fig plant so I can try to grow figs in my backyard. I get it. It’s how we roll.

What I don’t get are morons like this guy who think it’s a good idea to smuggle live pigeons in his pants:

The 23-year-old man was searched after authorities discovered two eggs in a vitamin container in his luggage, said Richard Janeczko, national investigations manager for the Customs Service.

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.

Live pigeons?? In his tights?? WTF?? What kind of pigeons are these that a guy would risk the family jewels just to smuggle in?

n_hall_pigeons_090203300w1Although the news story doesn’t reveal this guy’s background, it notes that he arrived in Melbourne, Australia on a flight from Dubai. Sure, he could be a Swedish guy, or a Japanese guy, or an Englishman flying through Dubai to get to Australia, but I don’t think I’m going out on a limb here when I say that the dude’s probably Middle Eastern. I mean, he also tried to smuggle in an eggplant for goodness sake. He probably just wanted to make the best darn baba ghanouj ever, I’m sure.

Besides, check out his hairy gams – there’s no questioning he’s Middle Eastern 😛

    LOL. No doubt, the dude’s most likely an Arab. Like you said, the hairy legs give it away. What the hell was he thinking?
