"You can't."
and so on.
Took a half hour and a call from Customs and Excise to convince him that he had wasted his money; instead of checking first if there were any barriers to importing those ****ing mangoes, he bought them and then (unsurprisingly) the shipper wouldn't refund him.

I know where I would have liked to have stuck his ****ing mangoes.
I reckon they rotted, somewhat like his brain.
In short he wanted "to boldly go where no mangoes gone before."
