Don’t Disturb the Squirrels
« on: April 01, 2009, 03:03:26 PM »
Westdeutsche Rundfunk, a German radio station, announced that officials in Cologne had just passed an unusual new city regulation. Joggers going through the park would be required to pace themselves to go no faster than six mph. Any faster, it was felt, would unnecessarily disturb the squirrels who were in the middle of their mating season. bebebebebe bebebebebe

And I suspect that "Rundfunk" probably translates into something a lot less cool than it sounds... bibibibibi
