Talking Out His Butt

The Land of Oz is on a roll this weekend with peculiar news!
This one is comp to The Courier-Mail.

A SELF-proclaimed British multi-millionaire named Mohammed Islam who was arrested on the Gold Coast with almost $120,000 in cash is under investigation as to whether he has terrorist connections.
Queensland police yesterday refused to comment on their investigation into the man, 22, but at this stage there is reportedly no evidence to link him with terrorist activity.

Islam allegedly had $118,000 in $50 notes in a suitcase and a mobile phone concealed in his rectum when he was arrested at a Surfers Paradise bus station on Thursday night.

Islam faced Southport Magistrate's Court yesterday charged with possessing tainted property ( boy, is THAT an understatement!!) but police prosecutor Sarah Fox said more serious charges could be laid.

Constable Fox said Customs officers in Sydney had found no large sums of money in Islam's luggage when he arrived in the country and he had not declared any.

A check with Interpol revealed Islam had supplied police with a false address in London.

Constable Fox told the court Islam had a criminal history in England relating to fraud, theft, public disorder and drug offences.

Hmmmm, bet it was one of those spiffy new "Browntooth" models...

Alright, I'm just gonna stand back now and let the oneliners begin!

Give it your best shot!

I'm sure there is a perfectly good explanation for all this. The banks were closed so he could send the money ahead or convert it to traveler's checks, and his hands were full so he had to stick the phone somewhere, and...

I'm beginning to sound like O.J.'s lawyers.

Could have been worse. Could have been a razor phone. Ouch.
