Sometimes, the picture just makes the story

A man was recently arrested at LAX for attempting to smuggle eight rare songbirds into the USA. Not a big deal, right? I'm sure this kind of thing happens all the time. Except for the fact that he chose to commit his crime in the most hilarious way possible:


Yes, demonstrating a near Monty Python level of ingenuity, he strapped the birds to his legs and attempted to walk out of the airport. Alas, his disguise was less than perfect:

Prosecutors say he had bird feathers and droppings on his socks, and birds’ tail feathers peeking out from under his pants.

Genius. You've got admire this guy for his commitment. It can't be easy to build a bird harness for your legs, wear said harness on a Trans-Pacific flight, and then try to walk through customs. For him or the birds.

Sony Dong, I salute you. You may be an idiot, but your idiocy is spectacular to behold.
