    While crossing the US-Mexican border, a bicyclist was stopped by a guard
who pointed to the two sacks the man had on his shoulders.  "What's in the
bags?"  "Sand," said the cyclist.  "Get them off - we'll take a look," said
the guard.
    The Cyclist did as he was told, emptied the bags, and, having proved
they contained nothing but sand, reloaded them, put them back on his
shoulders and continued across the border.  Two weeks later, the same thing
happened.  Again the guard demanded to see the contents of the two bags,
which again appeared to contain nothing but sand.  This went on like
clockwork every week for a year, and then mysteriously stopped.
    A few weeks later, the guard happened to meet the cyclist downtown
sitting at a sidewalk cafe.  "Say friend, you sure had us going crazy", said
the guard, "We knew you were smuggling something across the border... but
what?  I won't say a word - what is it you were smuggling?"  "Bicycles!"
