Customs officers discovered nearly 10.5 ounces of ecstasy tablets hidden inside a Mr. Potato Head toy sent to Australia from Ireland, the agency said Thursday. Upon opening the parcel, the officers were greeted with the smiling face of the popular children's toy, which features a potato-like head and removable facial features. But when they removed a panel from the back of the toy, the officers found 10.34 ounces of ecstasy in a plastic bag. The Australian Customs Service referred the matter to federal police, but no arrests were immediately made, the agency said.Take a look at the photo of the mule. He does look awfully suspicious. I think he's wearing a fake mustache. For a short history of Mr. Potato Head, check out this story from our recent special report, "Celebrating a Century of Plastics."
