Two Seattle men say they spent more than two hours in a detention center at the Canadian border after U.S. border agents discovered illegal chocolate eggs in their car.

Get a rope!

This would never have happened to nursecindy IYKWIM.

They can have my chocolate eggs when they pry them out of my cold, dead *ack*

I can only imagine the new variations on the Canadian jail scam that are being used to tell grandparents that Little Jimmy is in jail for possession of Kinder Eggs.

You're absolutely right Jeff. I would have eaten the Kinder Eggs long before I got to the border. The only evidence I would have left would be some chocolate stained wrappers in the floorboard of the car.

The Libertarian in me says that there should be a class of laws that says that something that can be illegal to convey to another is perfectly legal for private possession. After all, it would be perfectly legal for me to possess alcohol but highly illegal to give it to my grandson.
Sorry to be serious. But most of me says we are now ruled by a$$hats, of whatever party.

Leave the gun. Take the Kinder egg.

Good. They coulda given somebody diabeetus with those things.

I second what Steve said

I second what Steve said.

Chocolate eggs would not have lasted long enough to reach the border. That said, Customs once confiscated a possibly Cuban orange as we returned from Canada -- the orange wasn't labeled but was considered contraband because Canada trades with Cuba.

I guess I third what Steve said too

They let one Kinderei through, they'll have to let them all through, and then we'll have toddlers choking to death all over the place. Or maybe adults, I dunno.
p.s. I have a ton of Kinderei toys from the 5 years we spent in Germany. I think my granddaughter needs to get a look at them. She's smart enough not to try to swallow them.
