Anybody working in a 'costa' resort will tell you how many dead Germans wash up on the beaches each week. I once queried "why Germans ?" with a guy running a wind-surfing school, and he said it is only the Germans who leap out of their cars all hot and sweaty and full of Bier und Wurst and throw themselves into the nice cold sea and get their hearts stopped by the shock.

English, in contrast, rush to lie on the beach and turn bright red and get skin cancer. French of course, won't go anywhere near water. And locals don't come out until the sun goes down.

Just because somebody's bait from their cray pot washes up everyone is getting into a lather about it.

Reminds me of the oldie "How many Deutschmarks for a German haircut?". "Four - one for each corner". :D

Not a bad thread to have a re-run of the German Commandant jokes from a bygone age.

German Commandant to POW's "Today we will play squash - Heinz will drive the steam roller".

German Commandant to POW's "I have good news for you. Half of you are going to Berlin and half to Hamburg". Tommy Atkins "Which half are going where?". German Commandant "The top half are going to Berlin".

The mysterious head that washed up on Rottnest Island this week belonged to a Caucasian man with a full beard and moustache that fell below his chin, police have revealed.
An examination of the head by a forensic dentist has also found the man was missing seven of his front upper teeth and did not wear dentures or a plate.
"He had been missing those teeth for several years," Detective Senior Sergeant Cameron Western of WA's Major Crime Squad said.
Let's see now; any fellow Aussies also drawing a picture that includes a motorcycle and a sawn off shottie? :hmm: Of course I could be grievously mistaken, it's wrong to succumb to stereotypes. Maybe some hippie had a shrink wrapping accident on his beach front hobby farm and then fell in the water.

Given that the head was found wrapped in a plastic bag, police had ruled out the involvement of a shark or "sea creature". I do hope that's journalistic idiocy and not an actual statement from the coppers. If not; be afraid CSI, be very afraid. :}

suppose it's one up from leaving the towels on the beach !

British pilot called for start up from Malaga to Gatwick, given a 2 hour ATC delay.

German pilot called for start up to Frankfurt - granted immediately.

British pilot asked why they had a 2 hours delay, whilst the German crew, asking later, were granted immediate start up ?

German pilot said - because ve got up at 6 o'clock and put our towels on ze runway !!

They should have some idea of the age of the head, and also maybe how long it has been separated from its body.

A DNA profile could also predict the region of origin of the deceased.

I must say that I agree that moustache and beard might point to Hells Angels . . .

Dad and I (well, Dad did and I, at five, was with him)I found an unexploded bomb lodged in the rocks at Glenbrittle, Skye, sixty three years ago. Since then I've seen a few supposedly shrunken heads, having lived in the upper Amazon for a while.

Given the wonderful qualities of our Western Australian police force it really doesn't surprise me that they have yet to identify the bait, er sorry, deceased.

Got a trip planned for Rotto in a couple of weeks. I'll have a fossick and see if I can find any other bits. :}

Yes, possibly a bikie, or a destitute druggie of no fixed abode, who didn't pay his bills.

Apparently, our headless friend, was a major drug dealer in a large West Aust crime syndicate.

Turns out that this 'hard man' was actually a shirt lifter and his live in gay lover has just had his collar felt by the fuzz. (the cousins will have to work out that last phrase :E)
