Austrians Hopping Mad at Italians

by duncanr

the Italians are coming !!!

Hhmm, it seemed like a good idea at the time !

Every year, frogs trying to get from one side of the road to another in Austria are mown down by cars. Concerned frog lovers hatched a cunning plan to save them – frogs trying to cross the road are channeled into handy buckets. Once a day, the frog lovers collect these buckets, carry them to the other side of the road and them release the frogs back into the wild

What could possibly go wrong . . .

Enter a second group of frog lovers (from Italy). The 2nd group of frog lovers hatched an even more cunning plan – they watched and waited until the buckets were full of frogs then nipped in and stole them before the 1st group of frog lovers returned to carry the buckets across the road. The frogs (or to be specific, their legs) then ended up on Italian dinner tables

As the bard himsel’ said ‘the best laid schemes of mice and men gang aft agley’
