Bummer: No bongs for Christmas

316,000 Bongs Land Someone on Customs’ Naughty List

Custom officials unwrapped a surprise Tuesday at the Port of LA/Long Beach – 316,000 glass bongs disguised as Christmas ornaments.

The shipment’s value was estimated at more than $2.6 million. The fake ornaments were hidden inside 860 boxes that arrived from China in a shipping container.

Agents said the items were decorated like Christmas ornaments.

Customs spokeswoman Cristina Gamez says the importer remains under investigation and there have been no arrests.</em>

Wow, no arrests for shipping molded pieces of painted glass? Imagine. Our nation trembles in fear until this evil, evil deed has been dealt with. Think of the children!
