    Nothing to snort at: Colombian authorities find World Cup trophy made of cocaine at airport (from Canadian Press)

    BOGOTA - Fans worldwide have fashioned replicas of the World Cup trophy out of everything from papier-mache to plastic. But a lawbreaker in Colombia gets top prize for most original material: cocaine.

    Airports anti-drug chief Col. Jose Piedrahita says that Colombian authorities found the unusual statue during a routine security check by anti-drug agents Friday in a mail warehouse at Bogota's international airport.

    The 36-centimetre-high (14-inch-high) statue was inside a box headed for Madrid, Spain. The statue was painted gold with green stripes on the base.

    Piedrahita said Saturday that laboratory tests confirmed the cup was made of 11 kilos (24 pounds) of cocaine mixed with acetone or gasoline to make it mouldable.

    I'm guessing it was addressed to Maradona. . . sort of a consolation prize.

    C'mon.. This thread isn't about sports. :confused:

    It's like putting the 'Tiger Cheating' in the sports thread because he plays golf.
