Sen. Chuck Schumer unleashes worst puns ever in Chinese honey case

It was called “Project Honeygate” and resulted in the bust of two companies that reportedly ducked $180 million in import duties on cheap Chinese honey. We don’t have anything clever to say about that, so we’ll leave it to Sen. Chuck Schumer.

Just got a statement from Schumer on honey bust that includes way too many puns

Sen Schumer: “…For too long, foreign smuggling of this product has created a sticky situation for domestic honey producers…”

Sen Schumer: “…We need a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to honey laundering.” (thus concludes Sen. Pun’s statement.)
