So a gentleman is on trial for smuggling gold out of the Royal Canadian Mint and as part of the investigation they had to test if their theory of how he did it was feasible.
I'm just going to post an excerpt from the interview. Some people really don't get paid enough.
"CO: Did they show, or prove, that this is something that could actually go up someone's rectum?
KE: They did. There was testimony from the security people that they had actually tested this on a human being. And that when that person went through the metal detector, it went off. But when the person was given the secondary wand test, it didn't go off. So to them this was further evidence that indeed this could very well have been the method by which these "pucks" had left The Mint.
CO: Good heavens. Did the security person testify? I mean, do we know, was it a volunteer?
KE: Carol, I'm sorry. I don't know.
CO: Somebody drew the short straw on that one.
KE: Whenever you think you're having a bad day at the CBC . . ."
I know its bad but I can't stop laughing about this. Probably because this story is more than just eye opening! I mean who knew "puck possession" could mean anything outside of a hockey game...
Ok, ok. I'll stop now. If you want to read the rest of interview its here. It's literally comedic gold. D'oh! I did it again! http://www.cbc.ca/radio/asithappens/as-it-happens-wednesday-edition-1.3772566/did-a-royal-canadian-mint-employee-use-his-butt-to-smuggle-out-gold-nuggets-the-size-of-small-muffins-1.3772867
