Telling Porkies

From Newsvine: Spicy pork sausage found in 'soiled diapers'
MCALLEN — Customs inspectors scored the makings of a barbecue when a 21-year-old South Texas woman declared several soiled baby diapers at a U.S.-Mexico border crossing.

Suspicious of the chunky diapers, inspectors with U.S. Customs and Border Protection at the international bridge in Hidalgo found several links of spicy pork sausage, or chorizo, inside.
And the award for best double entendre in a 2008 AP story goes to...
The Mission resident . . . was fined $300 and her chorizo was seized.
Wah-wah. If only it had been a dude! I would have died.

On a vaguely related note, does anyone find it unsettling that chorizo is an anagram of rich zoo?
