Frozen falling faeces flummox Germans
The Local ^ | February 21, 2012

Posted on 02/25/2012 5:31:11 AM PST by billorites

There have been at least three incidents of falling bodily waste in the last few weeks in Bavaria, Baden-Württemberg and Saxony, according to the daily Bild Zeitung.

Although chunks of ice have been known to fall from aircraft in the past, the string of recent incidents has officials scratching their heads, but thankful that no-one has been hurt so far.

In Rodersdorf, Saxony two weekends ago, an 81 year-old pensioner heard something hitting his roof. Upon further investigation he found 20-centimetre frozen balls in his garden that stank terribly.

And earlier in February a 1.5-kilo chunk of urine crashed into a family’s garden in Niefern, Baden-Württemberg.

A family in Nuremberg had a similar experience when a 2-kilo piece of ice smashed into its garden.

“I was relaxing in our living room. Suddenly there was a huge bang,” 59-year-old Erika Keil told Bild. “I thought our roof was caving in.”

Investigating officials said the ice is likely falling from leaky aeroplane toilets.

“When an aeroplane’s water tank is not closed, water trickles out, freezes and falls off,” a Nuremberg airport official told Bild.

Falling ice – whether from human waste or ice that builds up on the plane and then drops to earth – is a common phenomenon. Though no-one is known to have been killed by it, there have been injuries.

In 2009, for instance, a British pensioner in Bristol was bruised after a block of ice fell from a plane and hit his thigh.

I suppose that means they should all carry umbrellas, even if pigs don’t fly.

The only thing that would have made that headline better is if it had happened in Finland.

I believe his American counterpart also wrote upon the subject. His name was I. P. Freely.

Hmm. Has anyone correlated the dates between the flying loads of crap and Moochelle’s monthly vacation schedule?

“Twenty centimetre frozen balls in his garden that stank terribly” - You harvest the cantaloupe in the Fall, not the Spring. Some people have green thumbs, others have black heads and they use clearasil.

I’m sure that phrase is hilarious in the original German, something about fliegen und gefahrten no doubt.

Those aircraft toilets must have used the design of old European train restrooms: you pooped directly on the tracks. There was a sign warning you not to do it while in the station.

Or finished experiments: There were cases of large chunks of flesh, believed to be beef (hopefully) that fell in the UK in times past.

On a similar note, there's been frogs, fish etc. dropping in various places, always attributed to "tornadoes sucking up them up and depositing them elsewhere". Funny thing, they were pretty selective tornadoes as no other associated items like lily pads or other solid debris would come down. Hmmm. :-)

Barney Frank has issued a statement saying he'd like them back.
