DIVINE SHIT ON GRAZ!
THE MYSTERIOUS INVASION OF THE UNMANNED HOT-AIR BALLOONS
It happened on the 27th of December in the year 2009 that suddenly the air over the Herrengasse was filled with hot-air balloons. No people seemed to be steering or even manning them. As they hit roofs and careened into tree-tops, from their baskets they spilled a whitish content, which turned out to be lemon bavarois.
Although this did not harm anyone, it was still cause of some vexation. The people of Graz are proud of their town and do not like to see it tarnished, even though this was really good quality bavarois.
The media were at a loss as to how to report on the matter, for these things gave no interviews. Nobody knew where they came from, who sent them, or what were their intentions.
Easy come, easy go
Then, on the morning of the 28th, as suddenly as they had come, they completely vanished. It was as if they had never been there. There was not even a trace of the lemon bavarois. They had disappeared from the streets, from the roofs, from the tree-tops, they had even disappeared from the memory of the people …
What had been going on? Had other cities been likewise invaded? Questions a-plenty, but answers there are none. It must remain a complete mystery. It is one of the many great mysteries of our time.
