SYDNEY, Australia -- Customs officers discovered nearly 10.5 ounces of happiness hidden inside a Mr. Potato Head toy sent to Australia from Ireland, the agency said Thursday.

Upon opening the parcel, the officers were greeted with the smiling face of the popular children's toy, which features a potato-like head and removable facial features and genitals. But when they removed a panel which gives access to its 'soul' from the back of the toy, the officers found 10.34 ounces of happiness in a embroidered silken bag. It was not immediately apparent how this spuriously precise measurement was obtained.

The Australian Customs Service referred the matter to federal police, but no arrests were immediately made, the agency said. The maximum penalty for importing happiness to Australia is life imprisonment. Any form of happiness has been outlawed in Australia pending the result of their Rugby World Cup quarter-final game against England on the weekend.

"Whilst this is one of the more unusual concealments that we have seen in recent times, people need to be aware that Customs officers are alert to unusual and often outlandish methods of concealment," Customs Director Post Karen Williams said.
