JOHANNESBURG - South African comedian and host Trevor Noah almost got himself into hot water over his love for biltong.
The Daily Show host spoke about his recent trip back to the US from South Africa when he tried to take some of the cured meat through airport customs.
"And then I get to the airport and then it's like a giant sign at customs that says 'no meat products coming into the US', right, but now there is like a gap from baggage to customs and this stuff is delicious."
Noah explained that he thought about throwing the biltong away but he couldn't so he had to eat it all right there and then.
"What happened is that I went a trash can and I was like I am going to throw it away then I was like, why am I gonna throw this away?
"So now I am at the trash can just like eating all this stuff."
