Bologna Smuggler Busted. No, seriously he was dealing illegal lunch meat.

Border agents seize 385 pounds of bologna

SANTA TERESA, N.M. (AP) - U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers working the port of entry at Santa Teresa have made a big bust ...

The officers seized 385 pounds of Mexican bologna after finding the contraband meat behind the seat of a pickup truck that had been stopped at the port Friday morning.

Snip.

I don't know about you, but bologna has to be one of the more vile things you can put in your mouth. Nutritionally speaking you may as well just put a nice piece of lard between your bread and be done with it. Out of seventy total calories, fat makes up sixty of those calories. Have you ever bothered to look at what they put in that stuff? Yikes, just yikes. A more honest labeling of this lunch meat would be "pressed and formed floor sweepings." That there is an illegal trade in this substance is mind blowing. God only knows what deplorable standards the Mexican government allows this stuff be made to. Again, yikes.
