Honey-smuggling? Wha-huh?

Don't give me that look. Behind that innocent stare lies multinational corruption on a grand scale. Et tu, honey bear?

Apparently honey smuggling is big business. Behind those innocent bear eyes might be honey; or maybe not. If it is honey, it might contain lead. Or antibiotics. Or perhaps it’s just a colorful mix of cheap high fructose corn syrup from China.

Honey-smuggling for heaven’s sake. Seriously, what’s next? Care Bear laundering? Strawberry Shortcake trafficking? Is nothing sacred, people?
