Luxembourg officials are happy that they have wiped the country off the map again. Firstly by floating a load of plastic ducks down a river, then by some pilgrimage called Octave whatever that is.
“We made world headlines with the free public transport thing” said interchangeable government spokesman Yves Flugelbinder.
“But don’t panic, all the people involved in that have now been buried in Bambesch.”
Flugelbinder kept talking. “We wanted to stage an event where adults throw snacks and ice cubes at each other but Internations keeps beating us to the punch.”
The town of Grevenmacher is getting back into the spirit by commissioning a National Gravel Museum, and Remich authorities are busy planning to dedicate a week entitled ‘The Celebration of the Cardboard Box.’
“It’s sponsored by Cactus” said Flugelbinder smugly.
