The Daily Fail: Willie Nelson

At 77 years old, Willie Nelson is too old to care or to take shit from anyone -- including Border Patrol.

Everyone who knows the name Willie Nelson associates him with reefer. But, the fact that he got busted with over a quarter-pound of weed could be a little bit of a sticky wicket for even him to get out of.

You would think that when you're, I don't know, maybe 50 miles out of the border check point, Willie's handlers would at least suggest hiding the weed. Then, when you were at least 10 miles out, you would think someone would spray air freshener and open up the windows to let the bus air out. Right?

Turns out, not so much. Whoops.
