German police can take a joke. Just not this one

Hat tip to German pranksters who thought it would be funny to build a snow sculpture of a VW Beetle in a No Parking zone.

They were right – especially after parking inspectors in Aachen slapped a ticket on it. reports wardens realised they’d been had when they tried to scrape the snow off the number plate.

Local police were not amused, despite claiming they could “take a joke as well as the next person”.

“It was a very convincing prank,” a spokesman said.

“But whether it was made of metal or snow it was still obstructing a road that should have been clear.”
