Going Out On A Limb

He Didn’t Have A Leg To Stand On

A Californian man has been charged with using his false leg to smuggle three endangered iguanas from a Fiji nature reserve. Jereme James stole the banded iguanas during a trip to the South Pacific island in 2002 and constructed a special compartment inside his prosthetic limb to transport the reptiles. Officials only began investigating James after receiving a tip-off. The iguanas will be placed in a breeding program.

FOOTNOTE: It musta been a hollow promise.

Such shin-anigans would have had me stumped even though I am known
for leg-pulling.
