Cheech and Chong at the Gates

I’m not usually a fan of drug smugglers, but this crew’s innovative effort warms my heart:

In a brazen attempt reminiscent of a medieval siege, Mexican smugglers tried to use a hefty catapult to hurl drugs north over the U.S. Border, authorities said.

The Mexican military seized 45 pounds of marijuana, a sports utility vehicle and a metal-framed catapult just south of the Arizona border near the small town of Naco last Friday, following a tip-off from the U.S. Border Patrol.

The script for the next Harold and Kumar movie has just written itself. For smugglers hoping to extend this line of work, I suggest using a trebuchet instead of a catapult next time.
