Mysterious information / Merkwürdige Auskünfte

1. Stuttgart Zoo – small friendly penguin probably stolen. Spiegel Online:

“She couldn’t have walked out with so many people around, but it would’t be so difficult to carry her away,” said Koch. “She’s just the size of a sack of flour.”

A sack of flour? Would that be ten pounds or twenty pounds?

2. Shiny Shiny introduces an ‘interesting toothbrush kit’.

Particularly interesting is its double function as, inter alia, a ‘G spot simulator’. Or maybe they will have changed the spelling by now.

3. The Süddeutsche Zeitung reports that the two small pandas in Nuremberg Zoo perhaps were killed by the muntjaks after all. That’s what I’ve believed all along. It was only recently that I heard that the pandas had killed a (baby?) muntjak on the same evening.

Die beiden Kleinen Pandabären im Nürnberger Tiergarten sind eventuell doch von anderen Tieren in ihrem Gehege getötet worden. Am Freitag verdichteten sich Hinweise darauf, dass die beiden Muntjak-Hirsche über ihre Mitbewohner hergefallen sein könnten.

4. Austrian police slow off the mark. Just because a mayor finds strichnine-laced Mon Chéris with a lipstick heart on his windscreen, doesn’t mean the would-be murderer was a woman. SZ again:

Die Liebesgrüße aus der Wachau waren vergiftet. Hannes Hirtzberger, Bürgermeister des malerischen Weinstädtchens Spitz an der Donau, fand am 8. Februar einen schmeichelhaften Gruß an der Windschutzscheibe seines Mercedes vor dem Gemeindeamt: Einen Umschlag mit einem Praliné der Marke “Mon Chérie”, dazu eine Grußkarte. “Du bist für mich etwas ganz besonderes”, stand da geschrieben.

  1. Bring back the Scottish and Zambian interdict as a noun and as a verb of interdicting that most scurrilous of publications. (PS The ECJ Trans. Dept. also accepts this graphic version of injuncting).

    • Yes, of course – it was a tip from your hotline that took me to the Brauhofgasse this morning – all will shortly be revealed. He flew away afterwards so there was no point in announcing his precise location.

  2. Thanks a lot! If you should go out again, do not hesitate to call the Hotline or send an email to give the location where you spot him. I will post it on LBV’s website. Alf
