I wonder how they sniffed that one out…
So which London embassy are they going to make a run for to seek asylum? My money’s on Chile.
Stop, you’re making me Hungary!
Have some Turkey.
Should we eat off the good China?
Just no spicy food, it is a Spain in the ass.
Can we catch these guys? Uzebekistan!
But what if I don’t Vanuatu?
@Antinous_Moderator:disqus Gotta admit, you Laos me there with that one.
Garlic is evil. The Brits are innocent.
In Norway, this was seen as utterly bizarre news – who would smuggle anything out of Norway?
(It makes sense with the EU border rules and such … but still.)
And in Ireland a man is sentenced to 6 years imprisonment for smuggling garlic, which is more than the time you get for assault, all because our benevolent EU overloads want to protect Italian growers.
I thought it was to protect the interests of secret vampire overlords or something.
Something about this whole thing just stinks.
White people problems: Native fish-cheese scent insufficient; need to motor-barge import garlic from antipodes, dodge duties and trade compliance to spice it up. Surely a- smuggling conspiracy rather than exim duty fraud conspiracy is a poor descriptor, and b- we want the (Swedish-Audio) video of the Chinese Farmers so up in teh ginger that the garlic’s just to mellow it out (also to sell gonzo output to an otherwise homogeneous market.)
Has Swedish cooking gotten enough less bland that you can make money smuggling garlic? It’s not something you’d put in the lutefisk or the meatballs. They do really good coffee and pretty good pastries there, but it’s hardly the country you’d think would have a huge market for garlic.
