This recent news item cracked me up! Probably, these two knew they wouldn't be risking
hearing impairment, considering how advanced they are in years .

So basically they're prisoners. I don't find that funny at all, a rather grim look on a potential future we might have to endure ourselves.

Strange way of handling things.

I thought it was bad enough getting a bill for dog registration from my local council for $135 the other day, with my pension discount being a measly $5. At least they don't stop me from going out and enjoying myself.

That is just crazy?!

They should escort them to music festival, not back in prison!

Is that how they call prison in Germany? Retirement home?!
