Bootlegging Is Not Just for the American 1920s


Russia Today: The ingenuity of some smugglers knows no bounds (if you call using an idea from The Simpsons ingenous; the beer baron episode, whatever). In Estonia, 11 people have been arrested and charged with pumping vodka from Russia into the Baltic state through an underwater pipeline. From August to November 2004, the gang are claimed to have used an unusual 2km long homemade pipe to squirt at least 6.2 thousand litres of vodka from Russia to the Baltics.

The ‘enterprise’ was uncovered after a truck with a thousand litres of illegal vodka was found in Tallinn.

The lucky bastard who found that truck...
