It’s clear now that I am not a rich guy because I can’t come up with money making ideas like this genius.
ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — A Canadian man caught at a border crossing with 51 turtles taped to his body pleaded guilty Tuesday to smuggling or attempting to smuggle more than 1,000 of the reptiles out of southeastern Michigan.
The man’s name is Kai Xu, which I believe can be translated as Mr. “terrapin junk.”
Xu “regularly deals in turtle shipments worth $30,000, $80,000 or $125,000,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Sara Woodward said in a court filing. “In China, the turtles he smuggles are worth two to three times the amount he pays here.”
This entrepreneur “was stopped by Canadian border authorities who found 51 live turtles in plastic taped to his legs.”
In an unconfirmed quote from his girlfriend she said, “It so cute when the little head pop out.”
