Fruit of the Loon

This story gives new meaning to "peeling off" your underwear:

A woman has been caught smuggling banana plants into Sydney in her underpants.

The 56-year-old Czech woman was travelling from Somoa when Australian customs officials became suspicious she was concealing something on her person.

She was frisked by a female officer who found the fruit in her underwear.

Quarantine officers immediately seized the offending items, which contravene customs laws as they can carry diseases which may threatens the Australian banana industry.
