Smuggling Quiz!

In order to get some friendly competition going, I’m going to post a quiz question on smuggling everyday!  Just post your answer below, and the winning answer will get a big round of applause!! If it takes off, this may be upgraded to a lengthier quiz with the possibility of a t-shirt/mug or some other suitably awesome gift as a prize! Good luck!
