“If we start letting movie stars — even though they’ve been the sexiest man alive twice — to come into our nation (with pets), then why don’t we just break the laws for everybody?” Agriculture Minister Barnaby Joyce said in May, according to the New York Daily News

Joyce threated to have the dogs killed. “It’s time that Pistol and Boo buggered off back to the United States.”
