    I took it as a commentary on the fact that we still have very porous borders here in the US, and the whole talk of security after 9/11 by Bush and the creation of Homeland Security, the Patriot act and what not...someone can still send something on by UPS...pretty ironic...just part and parcel of the whole "US" experience...you know hypocrisy, ineptitude, rhetoric and all that jazz...

    for the reasons blackfox stated, plus an illustration of how easy it is to get a gun in the US, gun checks notwithstanding.

    I know it's a parody site, but this is just precious: there's a little advertisement to the right of the story:
    "Related News: Get great deals on the new Apple iPod mini. Starting at under $250."
    :D

    It must be a parody site -- everybody knows you can't buy an iPod mini right now for any price.

    I guess we're going to force the 2nd amendment on Canadians next.

    Of course everyone is forgeting the otherside of this story. Somewhere there is a guy who got an MP3 player instead an illegaly mailed firewarm.
