Is that a hummingbird in your pants?

Or are you just not that into me?

From tywkiwdbi.blogspot.com:

The guy with his shorts full of hummingbirds was reported to be a repeat offender; he was allegedly intercepted at the same airport with an accomplice and a cargo of 53 hummingbirds two years prior to this photographed encounter. I was unable to find record of the convict’s previous offence, but in the 2010 incident, he was fined €6000. The value of his catch was estimated to be between €10,400 and €13,200...

So, unless I'm missing something, the guy was fined less than the value of the goods smuggled in 2008, and then was caught doing the same thing in 2010. What a surprise. Although I hate to think what the mortality rate of the birds is under these conditions...
