Duty Free

A close friend of mine declared Italy to be the land "where the simple is difficult, and the difficult is simple."  Here is a case in point.
"Yes, I would like one dried ham leg please to carry on the plane.  ...In fact, make it two."
These ham legs are located in the Duty Free at Venice airport (and situated between Mont Blanc accessories and Salvatore Ferragamo).  People were buying them for sure.

In the US, the Food & Drug Administration just does not go for open-air, hoofed, meat products like this. And Homeland Security has issued warnings about the connection between carry-on ham legs and risk of hijacking.
