A man was arrested for smuggling birds from Kazakhstan to Uzbekistan after police stopped him at the border and discovered 500 parrots in his car. The rest of the story is more or less as you'd expect. Arrested yadda yadda. Parrots safe etc. It's just kind of hilarious that he had 500 parrots in one place.

" Oh, I just got stopped because I was smuggling 500 parrots."

And the funny part is that through repetition, 500 parrots becomes one word so, it's more like fivehundredparrots and it also eventually ceases to be about fivehundredparrots. It's more about just this illegal cargo and people file it away at the police station.

But, at the end of the day, he will always get to say the hilarious phrase fivehundredparrots really fast like it's nothing. But, it sure isn't nothing. It's something.
