The story is amazing enough, but adding the photos really drives it home. Read the story before scrolling down: it’s worth it.
(Again, highly recommend reading the story before scrolling down to see the photos. Really — trust me!)
Sit On It!
It’s not known whether Enrique Aquilar Canchola, 42, thought his disguise would work, but it definitely didn’t. The Mexican national tried to cross the Mexico-U.S. border into San Ysidro, Calif., disguised as a car seat. A U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service inspector discovered the unusual camouflage when he checked the back of a van when it tried to sneak Canchola over the border. (London Times) …He agreed to it after learning immigrants are often treated like furniture.
OK, you read the story first, right?
Then only now you should scroll down to look at the photos
