Cue Gary Lewis And The Playboys!

RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil (Reuters) - Police in Brazil's remote Amazon state of Rondonia have arrested a man who had 666 rough diamonds stashed in his underpants.

The diamonds, worth about $200,000, were apparently smuggled out of an Indian reservation of the Cinta Larga tribe in Rondonia, a state police spokesman said on Tuesday.

Police stopped the 38-year-old man during a regular road check and became suspicious of his nervousness. After officers found equipment used by jewelers to measure diamonds in his car, they searched the man and found the booty in his briefs.

Illegal diamond miners often prospect on Indian lands, causing deadly conflicts with the indigenous tribes.
So naturally, my mind wandered back to the thrilling days of yesteryear....
Who wants to buy this diamond ring?
He took it out his bunghole now, it doesn't mean a thing
This diamond ring doesn't shine for me anymore
And this diamond ring doesn't mean what it did before
So if you've got someone whose love is true
Let it shine for you
