From the International File in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil comes the story of bozo smuggler Johann Zoller. Our bozo was trying to sneak some parakeet eggs from Brazil into Austria. He came up with a plan whereupon he would place the parakeet eggs in a sock and place the sock in his pants, hoping to slip through customs undetected. What he may not have taken into account was that the temperature in his underwear was just right for incubation. And you guessed it, the baby birds had already begun to hatch when customs officials arrested him. He’s been charged with animal trafficing.
