Old Dog Day Afternoon

Oh for crying out loud mister, why would you bother robbing a bank in Switzerland at 80? Seriously, just go home, put your feet up and leave it to the young and dumb. The masked geriatric made his getaway on foot but was soon apprehended. I feel I need to slap my forehead.

Two Trains Stolen In Switzerland

Attention loons , if you happen to come across two stolen trains from a minature train park in your travels, could you let the Swiss Vapeur Park know. Thanks! The owners are at a loss as to how the thieves managed to steal the petrol and steam trains, as one weighs almost a tonne. Hmm, I’m at a loss at why anyone would bother. Oh well!!!

Son Kamakazes His Mom’s Home…. With Her In It

Oh for crying out loud Konrad Schmidt from Switzerland, kamikazing your mother’s home in an attempt to kill her only works if she isn’t in the basement at the time. Schmidt, who had been estranged from his mother, rang her from the cockpit of a hired light aircraft to ask ‘Are you home? I am just going to drop by.’ He then proceeded to circle her house a few times to line up the plane before flying at high speed straight into the building or as a witness nicely put it, he did  a “mini 9/11”.  Luckily for his mom she was in the basement and missed the whole fireball. Mom 1, son 0!

Large Hadron Collider = Earthquakes?????

Call me cynical but guess what they cranked up again, days before the Christchurch and Japanese earthquakes? Hmm, if you said the Large Hadron Collider you’d be right. At the beginning of March, following a 10 week winter shutdown, the scientists  in Switzerland restarted  the particle smashing machine (aka big bang theory machine) deep in a ring shaped tunnel under the Swiss mountains. As I recall when this happened last year we had the Haiti and Chile earthquakes. Coincidence? I think not!

Want sauce with that?

Start Learning To Pluck Those Banjos Switzerland

Wow, Switzerland are currently proposing to decriminalize incest. Yep, you heard right. If a parent wants to sleep with his or her adult child or siblings want to get down and dirty with each other, who is the Swiss government to stand in their way.  A spokesperson for the Justice Department said “Incest continues to be a taboo in our society, but it’s not up to criminal law to stop every morally reprehensible aspect of behavior.” Dear god, just what the world needs, friggin inbreeding. Good luck with that!

Roman Polanski A Free Man

Oh my, seems Roman Polanski just got his get out of jail free card after Switzerland announced they weren’t sending the disgraced director back to the US because of a boo-boo in the American application for extradition. Evidently the judge in the 1977 case has assured Polanski that the time he spent in a psychiatric unit would be adequate time served for the sexual assault of the 13 year old girl.When the Swiss Justice Ministry was denied a request to view records of a hearing verifying this claim they rejected the extradition request. Now Mr Polanski can return to France a free man and the whole child rape case can be swept back under that “special treatment” Hollywood rug for good.

That Sinking Feeling

Who would have thought a bouncy castle fair in Ibach, Switzerland, would cause controversy? Well, if you are gonna have a Titanic bouncy castle where kids slide down the decks, you might just upset a few people, like say Switzerland’s Titanic Club. The 40ft slide, which depicts the Titanic in it’s most recognized pose, keel up about to sink into the sea, is designed for little snowflakes to slide down it’s decks. Hmm, not surprising some people have a problem with that, especially considering 1,527 passengers died when the unsinkable sank on its maiden voyage in 1912. A few of the visitors described it as sick, insensitive and a bouncy graveyard but it seems the kiddies were having a blast.

Psst Hmm, now sick and insensitive would be if they played Celine Dion’s song on loop!
