I started writing these articles when I lived in the German Alps and originally referred to them as my Alpine Press. I found there were many humorous stories in the German press that didn’t get much exposure outside of the country. So this was my attempt to demonstrate to the English speaking world that the Germans do indeed have a sense of humour. More recently I have started to add news from other sources – the only criterion is – it must be fun to read. Welcome to my ‘Fun Articles’.
There are a few sensible subjects included in the list below but the majority are intended to make you laugh. To read an article just click on its title:
