What people are smuggling to Germany

The simplyfied answer: twice as much drugsas last year, stuffed lion cubs, and wine made from cobras.


Each year, German officials give a press conference displaying some of the contraband seized by customs police. This year, they reported that German customs seized over five times as many pirated goods in 2006 as they did in 2005.

What else did they find? More drugs. They seized twice as much hashish and nearly twice as much cocaine in 2006 as compared to the year before. And endangered species, both flora and fauna, alive and dead, were confiscated in growing numbers.

I bet that cobra wine has a little bite to it.

I told Hans it was a bad idea to try to smuggle in those tiny umbrellas by attaching them to baby lizards but he said, "No one will ever notice the umbrella because of the lizard."

Smugglers only ever smuggle what people crave. The shops have everything else.
