Note to self

The next time I go to visit Big Brother to the South (aka the United States), do not, even if sorely tempted because they would make really neat gifts for little people, go to Costco and buy that box of Kinder Surprise chocolate covered eggs with a prize inside.

Seriously, this could lead to a $300 fine and lots of beaurocractic hoop-jumping.

I wish I was kidding, but thanks to the fine folks of CBC breaking this case open to public scrutiny, I am now informed.

Seriously? That's what the Customs and Border Patrol are worried about? Seizing 25 thousand Kinder surprise eggs is somehow making the nation a safer place for kids.

Hmmm, maybe we could ship some northward for you...or would that risk a fine too?
