Drug smugglers trying to get marijuana across the Arizona-Mexico border apparently are trying a new approach — a catapult.
National Guard troops operating a remote video surveillance system at the Naco Border Patrol Station say they observed several people preparing a catapult and launching packages over the International Border fence last Friday evening.
"It looks like a medieval catapult that was used back in the day," Tucson sector Border Patrol spokesman David Jimarez told Reuters.
The first thing that came to mind was that cow coming over the castle wall in Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
I say we build a couple thousand of these – you can probably get everything you need at Home Depot for a couple hundred bucks – and use them to fling dead, diseased animal carcasses back over the fence…Hell, we could use it for all of our garbage – charge five bucks a throw. Probably put Disney World out of business as a vacation destination in about a month…
