The Devil's Dandruff & Davey Jones' Locker
I swear I had absolutely nothing to do with this breaking nautical news:
SAN JOSE, Costa Rica - Tipped off by three plastic pipes mysteriously skimming the ocean's surface, authorities seized a homemade submarine packed with 3 tons of cocaine off Costa Rica's Pacific coast.You have to wonder if these guys weren't helping themselves to a few toots of the inventory if they thought that something with a top speed of 7 mph was going to be their magical drug-smuggling craft. I guess I have to give 'em a tip of the eyepatch for thinking creatively, though.
Four men traveled inside the 50-foot wood and fiberglass craft, breathing through the pipes. The craft sailed along at about 7 mph, just six feet beneath the surface, Security Minister Fernando Berrocal said Sunday.
