When we were little and someone asked us what we wanted to be when we grew up, we didn't hesitate, "the head of a elaborate international smuggling ring... that or a bin-man, or the rodent owner of a successful comparison website."
Sadly after some none-too-favourable stints of work experience, which involved frankly altogether too much 'dry swallowing', we decided maybe international smuggling wasn't all it was cracked-up to be, though we still retain an intellectual interest in the topic.
We're fans of "blue sky thinking" in all walks of life -- especially when it comes to smuggling contraband.
So in honour of our lost vocation we've rounded-up seven of the dumbest, smartest and daftest examples of unconventional smuggling we could dig up.
