{January 6, 2010}   That Shit Is Bananas


Have you ever eaten a banana and then decided it would be better with some cocaine? Well now you are in luck. I think cocaine bananas would be good in a protein shake. Actually, they were in plantains which means I think I want some plantanos fritos for lunch.

MADRID (Reuters) – Spanish police have uncovered at least 25 kilos of heroin hidden in boxes of plantains destined for the shelves of Madrid supermarkets, local media reported on Sunday.

A worker at the low-cost Lidl supermarket found a brick of the drug as he unloaded a box of the fruit, which is related to the banana, on Saturday morning, El Mundo newspaper said.

Police were alerted and hunted around all the Lidl branches in the Madrid region as well as the main city market. Sniffer dogs found up to 25 packets of the drug.

“Two or three police cars came and they went straight to the bananas to search them,” an employee at one Lidl branch told El Mundo.

Lidl withdrew all the plantains, which had come from Ivory Coast and Ecuador, from its shops, the newspaper said. Lidl representatives could not be reached for comment.
