The Crime Scourge Of 1952!!

There is one problem that U.S. Customs agents have to deal with that you probably never suspected.

That's right...I'm talking about--

Because in 1952, dames were especially clever and efficient smugglers.



I always knew there was a reason for those high heels...

Hey, wait, a guy could have a trunk, too. Let's stay on mission here!

That's better!!

And, of course, there's the little known legal principle:

We can do something illegal if it's not as illegal as what you're doing!!

Of course, I can't help but notice that all the ladies are smuggling is perfume and jewelry. No drugs? No contraband Canadian pharmaceuticals? No Kobe beef? No pirated DVDs? No endangered species?

And the methods--sure, clever, but it seems like Customs is all over those. No swallowed condoms full of contraband? Nothing requiring strip searches (or cavity searches)??

Lady smugglers--up your game!! There's more to smuggling than avoiding duties and taxes!!!

Can you imagine males custom officers being allowed to even touch a female these days.
