Mark Frauenfelder: Border officers inspection a car coming into the US from Mexico discovered a little girl stuffed into a Powerpuff Girls knockoff pinata.
pinata“Officers began to take the piñatas out of the back seat, and one [of the several pinatas in the car] seemed to be much heavier than the others,” said Vince Bond, a spokesman for U.S. Customs & Border Protection. “This one had a little girl of approximately 4 or 5 years of age inside it.”

The girl’s mother also was found, curled up inside the car’s trunk, and the girl’s brother, who is about 9 years old, was found underneath the collapsible back seat.
