You can't make this shit up.


You'd think that my having triplet daughters and changing them I would've hit the motherload in their diapers.

I found the loads all right, but no cash.

Dang it!

Half million dollars found in diapers in Mexico

A package of baby diapers yielded an unlikely load in Mexico on Friday, according to the defense ministry: nearly half a million dollars in cash.

Soldiers conducting a routine check "found in a tractor-trailer a packet of diapers containing 490,300 dollars," the ministry said in a statement.

It said that the cash was likely a stash of narco-dollars destined for money-laundering, as the truck had come from Culiacan, the capital of Sinaloa state in Mexico's northwest, a region known for trafficking by major drug cartels.

The driver of the truck was arrested.
