While crossing the US-Mexican border on his bicycle, a man was stopped by a guard who pointed to the two sacks the man had on his shoulders.
“What’s in the bags?” asked the guard.
“Sand ,” said the cyclist.
“Get them off;we’ll take a look ,”said the guard.
The cyclist did as he was told,emptied the bags ,and proving they contained nothing but sand , reloaded the bags , put them on his shoulders and continued across the border.
A week later, the same thing happened.
Again the guard demanded to see the two bags , which contained nothing but sand.
This went on every week for seven months, until one day the cyclist with the bags failed to appear.
A few days later the guard just so happened to meet the cyclist downtown.
“Say dude, you sure had us crazy,” said the guard.” We knew you were smuggling something across the border. I won’t say a word but you got to tell me what it is you were smuggling ?”
“Bicycles”, said the cyclist!
