More than just buns in that oven 

I'm all in favour of increased trade between my old home and my new home, but...
"Police in Australia have made a record seizure of the drug ecstasy, finding three million tablets in a bakery oven.

"The pills were hidden within the metal shell of the oven, which police say was imported from Poland, via Germany."
The shipment was worth A$200 million (or some US$154 million).

Readers of the online edition of Polish daily "Gazeta Wyborcza" have mixed feelings about their country being suddenly thrust into the international criminal spotlight. "Germans always find a way to blame Poles for everything," says one. Another tries to see a bright spot: "Wow! Ecstasy! We finally found something we're good at."
