Also, note the name of the presiding judge. For real.

He's looking real sharp in his 1940's fedora. He's got nerves of steel, an iron will, and several other metal-themed attributes. His fur is water tight and he's always up for a fight.

He's a semi-aquatic egg-laying mammal of action. He's a furry little flat-foot who'll never flinch from a fray. He's got more than just mad skills, he's got a beaver tail and a bill.

Re: Canadian Mint employee accused of smuggling $180K of "golden-hair" in his rectum
That's a 'load' off TRUMPS 'mind' now, as it was holding his hair in 'place' too.

He'd better put a screen in his toilet or there might be a "royal flush".

Maybe the employee just wanted to be the first human being to actually shit gold?

I have heard of being a gold plated ass before, but this is taking it too far.



Oh yeah, the Judge's name is proof I say that God has a great sense of humor.

Paraphrased from the comments, when they accused him of theft, he shit bricks.

"Is that even possible?"

"Yes, I tested it personally."

"But this is the first time I told you about the case..."

You would think they would know how much gold is supposed to be around. This highlights a terrible inventory management system if nothing else. Pretty sure that if you use 10lbs of gold and 8oz of silver, your supposed to end up with 10.5lbs of coins + trimmings unless there's a lot of loss from the smelting.

That aside, I wonder how they decided to test the process, like did some new guy just draw the short straw and get pressured into inserting a coin? Wonder if he gets extra for that, certainly doesn't sound like it's in the job description - anal smuggling expert, lol.
