On Thursday, the package delivery wizards at DHL delivered 35 pounds of cocaine wrapped in what appeared to be a “diplomatic sack” (hold your jokes, please) to the United Nations. Apparently, though the package was not addressed to the UN, it featured a mark that looked like the UN symbol; thus, DHL decided to deliver it and let the bureaucrats sort it out:
“It is my understanding that because there was no addressee, the DHL just thought well that’s the U.N. symbol so we should ship it on to U.N. headquarters and let them figure out who it was supposed to go to,” Deputy Commissioner Paul Browne, of the New York Police Department told the AFP.”
A UN spokesman assured CNN that the package of cocaine wasn’t meant for any members. Apparently diplomats still get their coke the old-fashioned way: from Russian strippers at underground nightclubs.
