If it’s September, this must be Oktoberfest!
I believe it’s already October in Germany, because of the different time zones. So yes, they’ve started Oktoberfest, their world-famous festival of drinking, smoking and cleavage.
Sheesh, I guess the entire region must grind to a halt while they’re doing all that drinking and partying, right?
No, actually they’re also having elections. It must be strange to wake up all hung-over after election day, see all the empty mugs and ashtrays, and then scream, “WE VOTED FOR WHO?”
