Years ago, I took a weekend trip to Montreal. We drove up from Cape Cod. Had a great time. Had never been out of the country before that and didn't know quite what to expect at the border. Getting into Canada was a breeze.

Coming back, we were asked by the US Customs officials to pull my van over for an inspection of its contents. No problem, but I did wonder what all the hub bub was about, until....... I stood outside my van during the inspection and noticed my bumper sticker.....

"Support the arts. Kiss a musician"

Hmmmm a little profiling I would suspect.
