"Attention - Passengers please don't leave any luggage lying around unattended ...

...oh and while you're at it, PLEASE don't try and bring back Giraffe Poop if you are returning from another Country...Thank You"  Well here's the deal, it's not like I work at the airport, so I can't be sure of this - BUT I would guess this would be one of the oddest things you would encounter if you were a U.S. Customs agent. Recently at the Minneapolis-Saint Paul Airport, a woman was attempting to declare some, let's just say some Giraffe offerings. Here is the problem, the woman failed to have some key essential proper permits. I know what you're thinking, I'm way ahead of you - WHY would someone bring any kind of feces into the United States?

Please forgive me if I am out of the loop 

I guess I missed out on a fashion trend. This woman had creative plans for the Giraffe turd - according to Bismarcktribune.com "...an Iowa woman who wanted to make jewelry from giraffe feces she picked up on a trip to Kenya and brought back to the U.S. in her luggage. The woman declared the small box of feces when she was selected to have her belongings inspected upon arriving at the Minneapolis-Saint Paul Airport on Sept. 29, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection"  Here is more on this tragic waste:

All kidding aside, the woman obviously wasn't thinking things through - the health issues alone are many - coming from Kenya, who knows what kinds of diseases could be unleashed and turn deadly. A quick personal message to this woman, if you want to come by my place, feel free to rummage through both of my cat's litter boxes.
