Shouting Himself Hoarse

Putting The Cart Before The Smuggler

A would-be smuggler was arrested after trying to outrun border police with £300,000 of cigarettes in a horse and cart. He was crossing Romania's northern border with the Ukraine, carrying nearly 100,000 packets of cigarettes and tobacco. A policeman said, "Outrunning our officers was never a possibility - even if he had a thoroughbred racehorse strapped to his cart."

When I was a smoker (seems so long ago now) I often feared that the NonSmoking Brigade would get them banned and I couldn't imagine life without a coffin nail in my hand...now that I am a member of that self same Brigade I know what my mother meant when she said "there's nothing worse than a reformed whore than a reformed smoker!" Too true!

Perhaps he forgot to put the horse before the cart.
