When I was a young lad I had the good fortune to visit the Oktoberfest held in Munich every year.
Ahh the memories that brings back. The huge steins of German lager which never seemed to empty. Singing along with the oompah bands all tarted up in their traditional lederhosen ( the bands, not me. Although leather...hmmmm). And those wonderful girls who brought armfuls of booze to your table where not only the beer was frothing over the top of the glass.
These lovely wenches have been got at.
Yes, you guessed it. The latest EU directive states that all ladies serving in the outdoors must cover up all that lovely exposed, wobbling flesh for fear of them getting over exposure to radiation i.e. sunlight , in plain English.
Understandably, this has caused a little bit of a ripple in the land that brought us saurkraut. Even the lovely ladies consider this as ridiculous.
The EU won't be happy until they have banned all traditions from all countries and ours is no exception. Whatever next.
