I'd immediately fly to Cartahena and buy 20 tons of pure, uncut cocaine and
smuggle it into the continental United States in the speakers and
amplification equipment of a fake rock & roll band that I pay to travel the
country playing bogus concerts and distributing the stuff to all of the
local kingpins. When caught I will deny involvement and flee to my secret
hideout on a privately-owned island in the Caymans, where neither
extradition nor tax law can find me.

Not that I've ever thought about this, mind you.

Say, can anyone here play guitar?
