that rocky: he's so clever!
from the bbc:
Stallone charged over growth drug
of what, his brain...?
Hollywood star Sylvester Stallone has been charged with importing a banned human growth hormone into Australia.
The actor, 60, was stopped at Sydney airport last month by customs officials who claim he had 48 vials of a banned substance in his luggage.
The muscle-building hormone product, Jintropin, is classed as a performance enhancing drug in Australia.
Such products cannot be imported into Australia without a special permit.
Prosecution documents handed to a Sydney court on Tuesday said Stallone had marked "no" on a customs declaration form that asked if he was bringing restricted substances into the country.
....At the time, Stallone dismissed the incident as a "misunderstanding", adding that customs officials were "just doing their jobs".
"I just didn't understand some of the rules here," he explained.
..."Yo, Adrianne! you know, er, it's, er, er, er, er....."
it must be very difficult indeed to distinguish between writing a simple 'YES' and 'NO' on a customs declarations form, knowing you have a banned growth hormone in your luggage...
