Mr. Potato Head in ecstasy bust


Customs officers discovered nearly 10.5 ounces of ecstasy tablets hidden inside a Mr. Potato Head toy sent to Australia from Ireland, the agency said Thursday.

Upon opening the parcel, the officers were greeted with the smiling face of the popular children's toy, which features a potato-like head and removable facial features. But when they removed a panel from the back of the toy, the officers found 10.34 ounces of ecstasy in a plastic bag.

Comment: It's disconcerting to see a favorite childhood toy used by the criminally minded! Those were simpler times in the fifties when Mr Potato Head was separate plastic parts to be stuck into a real potato. Talk about a simple toy! And we liked it!
