Woman caught smuggling 13 pounds of horse genitals says it’s for medicinal purposes

If you’ve been wondering why your shipment of horse penis from Mongolia is late, I have some bad news for you. Customs agents at Washington Dulles International Airport in Virginia seized 42 pounds of horse meat, including 13 pounds of horse genitals, from two women entering the country on January 29.

The meat, which was found hidden in juice box containers, was incinerated after being confiscated. Customs laws prohibit horse meat from entering the country unless the carriers have an official government horse meat certification from the country of origin. You learn something new every day.

The genitals, one of the women said, were for medicinal purposes.

“Customs and Border Protection takes no pleasure in seizing and destroying travelers’ food products,” said CBP Port Director Wayne Biondi, which must go double when we’re talking about horse dick. “We’re in the business of protecting America’s agriculture industries, like the livestock industry, from the potential introduction of animal diseases posed by these unpermitted food products.”

The concern, CBP says, is bringing bringing foot and mouth disease into the United States. No word on what all these people waiting for their horse junk pills are supposed to do in the meantime. Hopefully they’ve still got some of last month’s prescription left to tide them over.
