Laura Zuñiga: Miss Drug International
Late on Monday the Mexican army nabbed Laura Zuñiga (23), the reigning Miss Sinaloa, at a military checkpoint just outside Guadalajara, Jalisco. Along with her the authorities grabbed seven goons, enough weaponry to start a small war and $52,000 in U.S. dollars.
At first it was thought that the lady was travelling with a drug dealer's crew, as it is well known in Mexico that the major dealers all enjoy having young, lithesome beauty queens around to keep their knobs well polished. Quite what the girls see in the pot-bellied, middle-aged, multi-millionaires is unclear, but nevertheless the attraction is clearly there.
Not that Miss Zuñiga has anything to do with anything like that, since she has explained that the money was to pay for a shopping trip in Bolivia and Colombia. The guns and the goons? Well you know how dangerous the streets are these days, don't you? Especially in Mexico where you can't trust anyone.
With luck all this will be over soon as luscious Laura is due to represent Mexico in the Miss International competition next year.
