Man Hides Dildos in Sausage – Plans on Smuggling them into Dubai

Appearantly long hard thick sausage are legal in Dubai, but sex toys aren’t. A Dubai man dropped some sausages off at a butcher ship in Berlin, Germany and asked them to wrap them, cool them and hold onto them as he was planning on flying to Dubai the following day. But a watchful employee noticed that the sausages seemed a little too heavy. The butcher shop promptly contacted the police for fear there might be something hidden inside the enourmous weiners. How right they were.It’s really quite funny, I guess sex toys are illegal in Dubai so people have to smuggle them in. I wonder what the punishment there is for unlawful possesion of a dildo! Talk about repression!!!!!
