The plague of 'pot-tapults'

Resized_DSCN1618
As I blogged the other day, Mexican drug gangs are using makeshift catapults to fling bundles of marijuana across the border into Arizona. I believe three have now been discovered. The Mexican army says it came across another one yesterday in Agua Prieta in Sonora state. It provided these photos.

What do we throw back? Pumpkins?

I realize it's semantics but that looks like a trebuchet and not a catapult.

The PottiePults are bad enough but the dopeheads on the U. S. side of the border are the real problem. If justice comes to high profile dopeheads, like movie stars, athletes, etc., they would be sentenced to five years of cleaning human remains out of rivers and drains in Calcutta.

Now we should construct one to throw the illegals back into Mexico!
