Quirky Bit O' News


Here's a quirky bit o' news for the week....hee hee! I love this! From Germany.....

"An owl that had evidently drunk too much Schnapps from two discarded bottles was so inebriated that it got picked up by police. The bird will be released once it has sobered up.

'A woman walking her dog alerted police after seeing the bird sitting by the side of the road oblivious to passing traffic,' Frank Otruba, spokesman for the police in the southwestern city of Pforzheim, told SPIEGEL ONLINE." (From Spiegel Online International).

The owl was not subjected to a breathalyzer, but one of its eyelids was drooping!

I hope the owl enjoyed the Schnapps.

Happy Week,
Penny

P.S. Please don't forget to vote for Sam's review at The Romance Studio. Voting is open until Sunday, Jan 16! Thanks!

The best part about that was the concerned woman passing by! At least someone cared.

Hi Isabel! I wonder how she could tell the bird was drunk? Maybe he whistled at her...hee hee! Of all the things to get drunk on, Schnapps is not good! I know (unfortunately) from personal experience...a poor moment of judgment in my freshman year of college!

Are they publishing the name and contact info on the bird? Sounds like one owl I'd like to invite to my next party (grin).
