It’s tough in the slammer…

December 2, 2009

Blog Guy, you wrote about the Swiss chalet where director Roman Polanski may stay under house arrest while he fights extradition over a case of unlawful sex with a 13-year-old girl. The farmer in the driveway was a nice touch, but…

What else did you want to see?

It’s in Gstaad, in the Swiss Alps! Could we please see how the chalet looks with a dusting of snow?

There you go, a fresh snow shot. Storybook-like, huh? It brings to mind the classic story of “Heidi,” about a young girl in the Swiss Alps…


Oh get a grip, I just meant the scenery!

Can we see the chalet at night? And can snow plows get to it?

Yep, here you go. Polanski chalet photos for all occasions…

That’s stunning! I may visit Gstaad myself. How do you pronounce that?

According to Wikipedia, it’s pronounced [kʃtaːd̥]. Good luck with that.

Oh. Maybe I should just go to Vermont, instead.

Blog Guy, is the fence around the house to keep little girls from running away?

My suggestions to some Swiss citizen to deal with this slime would involve the use of a K-31. You guys have to have some left around yet, right?
