I've Just spent £300 renting a limo only to find out that the fee doesn't include a driver. :roll:

I can't believe I've spent all that money and have nothing to chauffeur it.

This was sparked by something I read earlier today. America is weird.

In January 2011, the US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) threatened a Manitoba resident with a 300 Canadian dollar fine for carrying one egg across the US border into Minnesota.
In June 2012, CBP held two Seattle men for two and a half hours after discovering six Kinder Surprise eggs in their car upon returning to the US from a trip to Vancouver. According to one of the men detained, Joseph Cummings of Seattle, WA, a border guard quoted the potential fine as "$2,500 per egg."

In 2012, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) re-issued their import alert stating “The embedded non-nutritive objects in these confectionery products may pose a public health risk as the consumer may unknowingly choke on the object”.

Kinder Surprise bears warnings advising the consumer that the toy is "not suitable for children under three years, due to the presence of small parts", and that "adult supervision is recommended".

As of 2017 Kinder Joy "eggs", a variant lacking the encased toy, are sold in the United States, although Kinder Surprise eggs remain banned.
