The Mexican Navy found more than a ton of coke hidden inside frozen sharks. Fucking nuts.

[via]

“Armed officers found slabs of cocaine inside more than 20 sharks aboard a freight ship in the Gulf coast port of Progreso in Yucatan state.

Correspondents say cartels are coming up with increasingly creative ways of smuggling drugs into the US.

Shipments of cocaine have also been discovered hidden inside sealed beer cans, religious statues and furniture.

“We are talking about more than a tonne of cocaine that was inside the ship,” said Mexican Navy Commander Eduardo Villa.

He said X-ray machines and sniffer dogs had helped to uncover the haul.”

A shark carcass is the last place I’d expect to find illegal drugs. A shark carcass is the last place I’d expect to find anything except a dead body. Not whales, though. Whales are the sluts of the ocean.

    Mexican drug smugglers get extra-credit bonus points for creativity after attempting to smuggle over a ton of cocaine inside 20 frozen shark carcasses. This gives new meaning to the phrase “Great White”. Details have not yet been released as to where the sharks were being delivered and to whom, but an unidentified spokesman said there is no truth to the rumor that the sharks were en route to an after-party for Lindsay Lohan.

    The “cocaine-in-the-frozen-shark” deal is already old news. How about the guy from Oklahoma who got mugged for his bologna sandwich, with a street value of 76 cents?
