Winfield Myers brings to light the newest outrage from the EU. Forget concerns over stagnant economies and rising threats of terrorism. The European Union has taken on a much more threatening situation - women wearing plunging necklines while serving beer in German biergartens. Yes, meine herren und frauen, the bureaucrats at the EU are taking on the wearing of dirndls, the attractions of which are apparent from the picture that Mr. Myers, courtesy of The Telegraph, provides for us. The EU munchkins are concerned that waitresses will be exposed to too many harmful rays from the sun on their uncovered charms and so need the protections of the bureaucrats from Brussels. If that is not enough to make Germany want to pull our of the EU, I don't know what is. Munich's mayor has the right idea.
"This is European law-making at its most pedantic," said Munich's mayor, Christian Ude. "A waitress is no longer allowed to wander round a beer garden with a plunging neckline. I would not want to enter a beer garden under these conditions."
Be sure to read Laurie Morrow's comments on this appalling situation that the EU has taken upon itself to rectify.
