Earlier today in Sri Lanka’s Colombo International Airport, a passenger was arrested by local authorities and found to have stuffed nearly $30,000 worth of gold into his rectum.
That’s nearly 1 kilogram of gold. In his ass.
The gold had been carefully wrapped in plastic and included four small bars and multiple chains of jewelry.
Airport police were tipped off when they noticed the 45-year old man ‘walking suspiciously.’ No sh*t, Sherlock.
And curiously this was not even close to the first incident of rectal gold smuggling in Sri Lanka. Just last week another passenger was found with 314.5 grams of gold stuff inside her rectum. Amateur.
Gold, of course, has a long history of value and marketability, going back to ancient civilizations that have been extinct for thousands of years.
Archaeologists have unearthed dozens of graves, some of which date back more than 6,000 years, containing gold artifacts.
