Australian Arrested With Dubai Pigeons Down Tights

TO Australia, where an alleged bird smuggler is having officials retrieve two live pigeons from his tights.

Can you smuggle pigeons, those rats with wings?

And would you put the pigeon down your strides beak up or beak down?

To the scene, where the Melbourne native has landed at Melbourne Airport after a flight from Dubai. He is searched.

In the man’s pocket is, allegedly, a multi-vitamin container holding two birds eggs. And then his legs begin to coo. Dubai can do that to a man.

Australia is just about the most uptight land on Earth, where a Sharia Law (pronounced Sheila) and other forms of banstabation are rife.

Officers seize a money belt containing “plant seeds and undeclared samples of eggplant” in the passenger’s baggage. Aubergine. The dangers are all too clear.

He is duly handed over to Australian Quarantine and Inspection Services staff.

Old Mr Anorak recalls his last and final trip to Australia where upon arrival he was doused with spray, which he maintains made it impossible for him to pass a backer’s shop without dressing in a boob tube and hot pants and popping in to steal a bread roll.

Says the voice of reason, Customs spokesman Richard Janeczko:

“Wildlife smuggling is not only cruel to the animals involved, it poses a severe risk to the Australian environment and the health of the Australian community. It is important that people declare all animal and plant materials to customs and border protection when they enter Australia.”

If convicted, the alleged smuggler could face up to 10 years in jail and/or a $110,000 fine.

Why he was, as is alleged, smuggling pigeons is unclear. But it bodes promisingly for Australian womankind…
