An interesting story from the Wall Street Journal about the aftermath of the attempting pants bombing over Christmas:
Because customs officials once caught him with sausages made from donkey parts hidden in shoes packed in his luggage, [chef Chris] Cosentino's bags were already subject to extra attention. He once got around that by duct taping to the inside of his blue jeans seeds for a special variety of chicory he found at a pet-food store in Bologna, Italy. Scanners able to see through clothing, now being installed in many foreign airports, should put an end to such practices.
Additionally, I love the fact that someone at the Journal was charged with illustrating wild boar salami for this piece.
