Anything To Declare, Sir?

Only These Homing Pigeons, Officer

A man was caught with two pigeons stuffed in his trousers after he got off an international flight in Melbourne. Australian Customs officials say the live birds were wrapped in padded envelopes and held to the man's legs by a pair of tights under his trousers.

FOOTNOTE: Pigeon coup.

I suppose the pigeons were for auxiliary flight purposes if the airplane broke.

Too bad for the poor pigeons. It's a good thing he was caught. Imagine him making a habit of it.

He's a nervous flier, they were his plan B in case of engine failure, is all.

Puts a whole new twist on May West's infamous quote. If you use the pigeons as a prop it reads, "Is that a pigeon in your trousers, or are you just glad to see me?"
