    HAH !

    I think this is the operative statement here.

    After a safety assessment -- including a trip by officials to France -- the authorities declared in March that the cheese "poses a low risk to the health and safety of consumers", but allowed six months for objections to be lodged.


    I bet they flew 1st Class too on this onerous task; & I wonder if they were all Canberra based officials?
    So many projects - so little time.

    There's a couple of classic statements in there, this being one of them:
    Asked where the cheese will come from, given that it has been banned for a decade, a source close to the event said: "We have found a stash."
    It smells like it was one of those things that were banned if you wanted to believe it was. (As the Official 'inspection' party obviously did)

    My dad has a thing for smuggling odd banned foods through customs, and when we last came back from france he got some of the roquefort and a strange salami past the sniffer dogs... (what living thing can't smell that cheese anyway??)

    I am praying that his stash gets busted some time soon because it will be bloody hilarious...

    Icon13 Try a full size leg of ham!

    My father-in-law can be embarassing, especially when he packs one of your suitcases with a full 30 kilo leg of ham, bone and all - imagine the dogs going after that one!

    Congrats on the Fuego sale, Al. Who bought it?

    30kg of ham! I had better not tell my dad that or he will try and improve on it...

    And the fuego appropriately went to feugman. (or his sons anyway) It will be joining their two, but i don't think it will stay whole unfortunately...
