A famous chef was stopped as he brought 40 piranhas in a duffel bag through the L.A. airport. Virgilio Martinez, chef-owner of Central restaurant in Peru, told the L.A.

After five hours, the agents let Martinez go with the fish. He used them that night on a salad. (AP)
Australia’s central bank has taken responsibility for typos on 46 million bank notes after a radio station posted an image of the microscopic error. Triple M radio posted on Instagram on Thursday a magnified photograph of a 50 Australian dollar ($35) note with “responsibility” misspelled.

But federal drug czar Marlene Mortler slammed the idea Thursday as appearing to give dealers “license to trade.” (AP)
