This man smuggled live pigeons onto a plane. In his pants.

(Also, let it be known that "undeclared eggplant" deserves a place in day-to-day parlance.)

"Are those live pigeons in your pants or are you just happy to see me?"

Some people are just... weird.

Honestly, lives pigeons in his pants ? O_o That's just surreal -and ok, funny as hell.

Not just "undeclared eggplant" but "undeclared eggplant in his baggage"!!!!!!

In my newsroom the person who discovered it read it as "undeclared aubergine", which I posit is a much better band name. ;)

Amazing story. :D Why didn't I think of smuggling live pigeons from England this weekend? (Perhaps because I still retain a modicum of sanity?)

"Undeclared eggplant" is genius, too.

I have never, ever forgotten a news story I read in the local paper when I was about twelve, concerning a woman arrested at the local airport for trying to smuggle 54 live exotic snakes in her bra.

In her bra. 54 of them.

...Even if they were very small snakes, and a very, very large bra with, like, built in compartments, can you imagine the squirming?

That's freakin' hilarious... except, I feel sorry for the pigeons!

Poor birds.

And he did smuggle live pigeons onto a plane. He merely failed to smuggle them successfully off the plane. Makes me wonder what happens to them now--can they get through customs to go home?

I'm just...absolutely speechless.

Man, I love my country's customs and quarantine department. Bring in a shipment of dope, no problems! But try and smuggle an eggplant and you're in trouble, mate.

My Dad smuggled us a turtle in a plane in his breast poket when I was little. From Poland, I think.
