The World Cup’s been filled with weird and wacky events (soccer aside). The latest? A coked out World Cup trophy!

A replica of the World Cup trophy made of cocaine was seized by officials at Colombia airport on July 4th. The replica was made out of 24 lbs of cocaine and probably molded with gasoline or acetone. Officials found the 14-inch replica in a crate at Bogota airport. The box was marked to an address in Spain.

The gold-painted replica was found in a routine sweep of the airport, say officials.

What comes next? A vuvuzela molded out of heroin?
