Lookin’ for my Luger, Sugar?

September 21, 2009

Blog Guy, recently you blogged about that Oktoberfest thing in Germany – you know, the party with all the beer and the women with those huge, uh, mugs? I saw a travel ad for it that said, “Come to Germany and get frisky!”

I think you misread that. It said, “Come to Germany and get FRISKED.”


Yeah, look at these photos below. I gather some people must be trying to sneak in weapons.

So? What could possibly go wrong with bringing weapons into the “world’s biggest beer festival?”

I suppose the chance to shoot at guys playing oompah music is too much for some folks. Heck, I’m not sure I could resist it!

I guess I seeĀ  your point. I was wondering. Do you have any photos of the guards frisking the chicks with those big…

Those big smiles? No I don’t, sorry….

Uh uh – no way man. Do you KNOW what happens to Aussies over there?

According to this news article, they get drunk and walk under trains. I don’t want to die! Or they hurl beer steins (otherwise known as mugs) into the crowd, smashing and injuring innocent bystanders!

I like my mugs just the way they are – I don’t want them hurled into the crowd and smashed to smithereens!

Sorry Bill, you’re on your own.

I guess I’ll stay here with the military helicopters flying overhead because of the G-20 (plus 3)

Happy Spring, Little Miss Random.
