A man's attempt to smuggle live tropical fish into New Zealand in his trouser pockets floundered when water was spotted dripping from his clothes, officials have said.

The Vietnamese national travelled from Australia to Auckland earlier this week and airport officials suspected something was fishy because liquid was seeping from the bulging pockets of his trousers, the Ministry of Primary Industries (MPI) said.

The man initially said he was carrying water from the plane because he was thirsty.

To paraphrase Mae West: "Is that a fish in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?". What an hysterical way to try and smuggle something.

So he put it in his pants. Do people even try to make convincing lies these days? Not that you can make sense of water in one's trousers.

Maybe they assumed he was swollen? I'm not making fun ofcourse, as there people with those problems. I'm sure he after staring for a while though, they must've noticed something fishy was up with him.

I'd like to know how he got on the plane in the first place. Besides, that must have been uncomfortable with the seatbelt on.

I'll be the first to admit that I've done stupid things from time-to-time, but this makes me laugh.

Good thing he wasn't trying to smuggle piranhas in his pants.  :passifier:
