MADRID – The old joke, "Is that a bulge in your pants or are you just happy to see me?" has new meaning these days.

Police officers in Spain arrested a male passenger upon landing in Madrid after noticing a rather large bulge in his pants between his legs.

The Huffington Post says after further inspection, what police found inside the bulge was almost half a kilo of cocaine.

The 43-year-old man was traveling from Costa Rica when he was stopped.

Police originally found nothing during a routine bag search, but grew suspicious when they saw the aforementioned bulge.

In the overstatement of the year, the National Police of Spain tweeted out a picture of the bulge saying there was a "suspicious package between the legs."

The man was taken into custody and faces drug smuggling charges.
