German judge has told our reporter that he will 'not hesitate' to slap heavy fines
on visiting streakers if they interrupt any of the World Cup games. The tournament
begins in Munich, Friday 9th June 2006.
Heimlick Hossfilger told our reporter:
fine is the equivalent of 12 Euros per inch, or 5 Euros per centimetre."
have been fining local streaking men this for over three years and the fine has
become very popular, especially now that full details of the larger fines are
printed in the local paper."
expert in Fines and Stuff at Harvard University:
Germans seem to be on to something here. Making a streaking man pay a fine linked
to the size of his eeer-ghem is almost the perfect fine when measured on
a risk-reward basis."
although it is clearly a popular revenue raising fine, I fear that it will only
serve to encourage certain exhibitionistic types."
of local newspaper, Der Klienerpumpfen, said:
day when we started putting photographs of the fined men in our paper saw the
critic of the scheme observed:
a streaking man for the size of his you-know-what on the one hand undoubtedly
gives him a bigger fine for what is a bigger offense, however it's seen by those
men as a small price to pay for bragging rights."
such a shame that all the men so far have been happy to pay the larger fines,
I would like to see a test case at the
European Court of Human Rights."
Vlandovstok, so far fined the largest amount (156 Euros), told our reporter:
have become a minor celebrity since my fine. I decided to plead not guilty at
the trial just so that I could have my penis measured officially."
