U.S. Customs and Border Patrol officers intercepted 385 pounds of Mexican bologna after finding the contraband luncheon meat behind the seat of a pickup truck stopped at the port of Santa Teresa, New Mexico, last Friday. I wonder how they sniffed that one out. Guess the smuggler didn’t do a very good job of hiding the salami, so to speak.
My baloney has a first name. It’s I-L-L-E-G-A-L. My baloney has a second name. It’s I-M-P-O-R-T-A-T-I-O-N.
The worry is that since pork is used in the bologna that there could be nasty parasites and stuff in the meat. Could well be true which is why I always choose name brands with my processed foods.
Then if I develop food poisoning and die, my heirs have someone to sue.
Of course, the real purpose, as some of the commenters mentioned, might be that bringing in a smelly meat just before the weed truck can mess up the dog’s sense of smell. Perhaps enough to get the truck through.
I wonder if that is true.
