Like Burritos Stuffed In A Shoebox


Mexican officials stopped two trucks crammed full of people trying to sneak into the US.

Police stopped the trucks, carrying 240 and 273 people, on the outskirts of state capital Tuxtla Gutierrez early Tuesday, after they accelerated through a vehicle scanner at a police checkpoint, the statement said.

That's 513 sardines packed without oil. It must have been under extraordinarily inhumane conditions but I'm to the point where I really don't care. They'll be catapulting them over the Rio Grande next. Or maybe a trebuchet.

Kid stuff. We used to jump off of 100 foot cliffs onto the tops of moving freight cars when we were 7.
That's after we got bored playing chicken with freight trains moving at 65 mph by putting our heads on the track and seeing who would chicken out and pull their head off first.

Anyway, Trebuchet's are only good for hurling pumpkins.

King Edward Longshanks of England, built the largest called WAR WOLF
Seems like one that would hurl a Buick might be a little bit bigger.

And DHS will be Janet-on-the-spot on the border, putting up the giant nets to catch them.
