This contest is fueled by the following news: There was something strange about the express mail package delivered over Brazilian border, so the inspectors stopped it for further investigation. The box wax X-rayed first and then opened by the police at the customs. Their suspicions were justified when the opened package revealed snakes in the plastic containers normally used for take away orders at fast food restaurants. Snakes are usually shipped in the plastic or paper tubes used for shipping the long rolled posters. Mail carriers try to make sure no smuggling of forbidden items or animals takes place, but some shipments can carry surprises like that because it's hard to check the exact contents of every single package. When it comes to electronic mail, however Britney Spears pictures are still in demand.
