Just When You Thought It Was Safe...

Bavaria is supposed to be a really safe state to live and one would imagine that Munich must be one of the safest cities BUT.....

I was driving to the company where I teach English this morning and listening to the local news on the radio. The top story was about a bear which has somehow sneaked across the border from Austria - I mean didn't those border police check his passport - and has gone on a wild bloodthirsty rampage, killing 11 sheep and 3 chickens. I was thinking, "that really shows how safe Bavaria is when they have that as the top story..."

ONE bear in the whole of Bavaria....I mean how unbelievably, mind-bogglingly unlucky would you have to be to get yourself eaten by that one lonely illegal bear immigrant?

And as I was thinking the words "unbelievably, mind-bogglingly unlucky" the next news item came on - about an unexploded World War 2 bomb which had been found in Munich that morning... and where had it been found?

In the very street I was driving along !!!

If the bears don't get you the bombs will!

I spent the rest of the morning avoiding anyone who looked like a bear with a bomb.

Apparently its the first bear in Gertmany for over a hundred years. To get killed and eaten by him you have got to be the most unlucky person in Germany! :)

LOL One of those days I guess!

And did you hear about the unexploded WWII bomb/mine in the River Mersey last week?

And there was an unexploded WWII grenade in a house in the Midlands the week before.

Maybe the bears aren't so bad after all!
