[BREAKING NEWS] Swiss invade Liechtenstein

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070302/...taken_invasion

Yes, about time I say. Another mile and we'd have been up to the Austrian border if we had managed to cross the Rhine (they never taught us to swim in the Rekrutenschule, see?).

But we'll have another go once the tense political situation has calmed down. The weekend should do it.

The AP article made it into the New York Times today. They found it funny as well...
