... beer and women will get even cheaper! (c) Kurt Faltlhauser
Somehow, this sophisticated remark by Kurt Faltlhauser, our most honourable Bavarian Minister of Finance, slipped my attention, when made on a beer festival in May.
But read how The Economist sees this:
>>Kurt Faltlhauser is unlikely to resign, but Bavaria's finance minister has clearly outed himself as a male chauvinist pig. After tapping a keg of traditional May beer at a festival, he gave the audience of several hundred a taste of raunchy Bavarian humour. Referring to the recent visa scandal, which has allegedly allowed many Ukrainian prostitutes to come to work in Germany, he noted that there was still much unfulfilled demand, particularly in Bavaria; as he put it, each state has the right to the skills of freedom-loving Ukrainian women. He went on to pledge that when Edmund Stoiber, Bavaria's premier, is at last elected chancellor, beer and women will get even cheaper.<< http://www.economist.com/diversions/displayst...
To the "skills of freedom-loving Ukrainian women"! Cheers!
