This blog has been only about refugees lately, and as much as I’m still obsessed with the topic (more on that another time), there’s so much else going on. Other things need to be dealt with. And quickly.
For example: people climbing objects in public & standing on said objects. Like in the photo above.
The headline reads: ‘How did the American get on the roof of the toilet?‘
My strong suspicion is that he climbed up there. The question they probably wanted to ask was: What on earth was he thinking when he decided to scale the toilet inside the tent at the Oktoberfest? Why indeed.
It is the Oktoberfest. There are plenty of similar stories during these two weeks.
The curious thing is this isn’t the only instance of something like this happening these days. Not just in Munich & not just during this exceptional time of year.
While scrolling through my feed on a social media site, which I choose not to mention by name, I saw a photo of a rather curvaceous woman naked from the waist down standing on a pay phone with multiple police officers below apparently trying to coax her to come down.
Despite the outlandishness of the visual, my immediate reaction was, ‘Where did they find a pay phone? I’ve not seen one of those in ages.‘
Once I got over that shock, I could move on to the more pressing question. Specifically, why are people climbing atop such objects?
Is this part of the Zeitgeist & I missed the memo? Should I be climbing on things & belligerently refusing to come down? That’d certainly make this blog more entertaining at the very least.
I’m not going to include the image here of the woman I’ve mentioned. Nevertheless, I’m confident if you type ‘naked woman on top of pay phone‘, you’ll locate it rather easily. But you should probably do that soon. My suspicion is the web is going to be flooded with this stuff before you know it.
