Everything these days is a sequel, a remake or an adaptation of some other property. Hell, just look at last year's highest-grossing movies: only two of the ten were anything close to original ideas. Want more proof? Just a week after a guy was busted for allegedly trying to smuggle coke into the country by taping bags of it to his legs, another man was allegedly caught pulling the same trick. A lack of creativity like this is almost enough to make you just give up on drugs entirely... Almost. You will want to take a little something to enhance the rest of this blog post.
The Department of Homeland Security announced that they arrested one Mayobanex Ruiz Gomez of the Dominican Republic for allegedly attempting to smuggle five pounds of cocaine into the country by taping the bags to his legs. Customs agents claim that Gomez exhibited signs of nervousness when he stepped off a flight from the Dominican Republic, and that they discovered the bags of coke when they physically searched him.
According to Homeland Security, the value of the five pounds of coke was over $83,000.
"It was like ‘déjà vu all over again’ for U. S. Customs and Border Protection officers," a press release from Customs incorrectly claimed. Déjà vu is commonly thought of as living an experience that you already seem to have a memory of, therefore this instance of another man trying to smuggle coke in his pants is really just normal déjà vu. If, somehow, a third man is arrested for this (and someone probably will be because everyone just loves trilogies), that will be déjà vu all over again.
