Vegemite International Incident

imgVegemite5.jpgUS customs officers learned an important lesson this weekend, which is that you do not mess with an Australian's Vegemite. Authorities tried to confiscate Foreign Minister Kevin Rudd's Vegemite on Sunday, a very serious situation that he later tweeted "needed foreign ministerial intervention." Eventually they waved him through when he informed them that the spread "is good for you." [Independent]
