if you get around to it, i want a Prince Charles mug ~ it would be ugly, but would hold the biggest volume! hmm. a double-handled mug.. his ears would be perfect!

How the hell do UPS charge a French citizen 40 bucks in taxes for a $24 item? That's a 166% tax rate!! Shouldn't there be a value cut-off for shipped items that Customs overlooks?
Tell UPS to get knicked!

Canada Customs charges an exorbitant 'handling fee' so if your tax is say, 1.50 cents, they will add another 10 or 15 dollars to it to pay for all the paperwork and manpower it took to charge you the buck fiddy.
