This is probably one to file under mind-blowing and ridiculous. After a conjugal visit, a young woman—19 years old to be exact—in Mexico was caught red-handed trying to sneak her husband out of prison in suitcase. The guards noticed something was up when she had trouble carrying the luggage. Maybe if she had used a Tumi x Opening Ceremony expandable carry-on, it would have worked. First, Tumi's are nearly indestructible. Second, they have wheels and third, the colors would have distracted the guards. Oh well, young love is dumb. [Business Insider]
