A 94-year-old pensioner broke out of hospital in Munich so he could belatedly celebrate his birthday in one of the German city's famous beer halls, police said Thursday.
A passer-by noticed the elderly man at an underground rail station on Wednesday as he still had an intravenous drip needle implanted in his left hand.First, intravenously isn't my favorite way to get a beer. I guess it's better than no beer at all. ;-) I know that's not why he had the I.V. Second, what's wrong with these Germans? What jerk would call the cops on this old guy? All they had to do was ask him what was going on, and as soon as he told them he escaped from the hospital for a birthday beer, they should have taken him here:
I would have bought the old guy his beer. When/if I make it to 94 I hope the Hofbrau is around and someone buys me a frothy breakfast there. Maybe I'll have a couple of sausages to go with it.
