Is That Bologna In Your Pants, Or…

An American citizen was detained after trying to smuggle pure, uncut Mexican bologna into the U.S.

A New Mexico resident has been cited after federal officials say he tried to smuggle 76 pounds of illicit lunch meat from Mexico by hiding it in a spare tire.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection said last week that the eight rolls of Mexican bologna were discovered aboard a truck at an El Paso port of entry on Friday.

Officers detected an anomaly in the appearance of a Ford F-150 as it arrived at the Paso Del Norte international crossing port. Agents scanned the spare tire with a density meter. When they opened the spare tire, officials said agents found the bologna hidden inside.

The street value of the seized bologna is close to $50 million, if it’s sold in individually-wrapped slices.

  1. I must be missing something because I just don’t understand the need or want for this stuff. Now Black Forest Ham is another story.

  2. OK, I was going to ask why the he&* this idiot didn’t just declare this, but before shooting off my big mouth I went to the Customs Service web site and found that the great majority of meat products are in fact prohibited from import into the USA.

    This interests me because I clearly remember buying things like sardines and other items that were clearly labeled as being from Thailand, or the Philippines, etc..

  3. My bologna has a first name, it’s P-E-D-R-O.
    My bologna has a second name it D-I-E-G-O.
    I buy it in the border towns
    I buy it in the loaves and rounds.
    I get the runs, it’s not much fun
    But it’s a peso for a pound!

      1. That was a very moldy oldie. Back in the fifties (YIKES! Am I that old?), Little Archie had a kite with a sting of hotdogs for a tail. One of his buddies said, “I never sausage a kite.” It took me a while to figure that was a pun.

        Every now and then I’ll dust it off and use it again.
