That's no ass

That's no ass, that's your Homeland Security dollars hard at work. Federal officials managed to seize 1,800 pounds of pot in 200 concrete burros in a shipping container at the Port of Long Beach this week. According to the Los Angeles Times, "The shipment came from Mexico and was being sent to a fictitious business in Fontana, California." Thanks goodness they were on top of it, that there mighty dangerous marijuana might have fallen into the hands of miscreants like Michael Phelps.

Fortunately, the Feds managed to nab 15 suspects too, whose future incarceration will probably only cost the American taxpayer, $10 million give or take. Good work. And criminals beware, your lawn ornaments are not beneath or above our suspicion.
