From the BBC News (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/7869301.stm)

A man has been caught with two pigeons stuffed in his trousers after he got off a flight from Dubai to 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.

Officials also found two eggs in a vitamin container in the man's luggage.

That would make quite a tasty meal, as long as all the ball sweat was cleaned off first.

Wow, I'm kinda more amused at the fact that some local friends of family are trying to somehow equate this to a form of terrorism.

Smuggling pigeons to Melbourne? That's like smuggling sand to the Sahara.

What a dumb arse.

I disagree. I've had pigeon before. If I had to describe the taste, I would say it is akin to rubbery, congealed, milk-based vomit.

I'm still trying to understand why the man was smuggling winged rats in the first place.
