Re: "5 Things You Don't Know....

I couldn't help but comment on this paragraph...

"Now Spider-Man pinatas are disappearing from Mexican party stores.
Authorities say Mexico's counterfeiting business -- which extends to pinatas,
since foreign corporations own the rights to many characters -- is providing
profits to drug gangs. So they're cracking down."

One question is, just how much per pinata do foreign corporations make?

Second question, what percent of their cartel fighting resources are being used
to combat this? I don't even want to picture the swat team kicking in the
door of the pinata store in a raid.

Third question, what the hell is this even doing in the article? I don't know weather
to laugh or shake my head in disbelief. If this keeps up the kids will want
their pinata to be in the likeness of their favorite cartel boss.
