Tourist fined for wanton waving of whanger

Take note – story published 6 years and 11 months ago

Riga's municipal police pounced on a public penis June 16, slapping said errant appendage with a hefty 250 euro fine for petty (or perhaps petit) hooliganism.

Police cameras caught the visting dicknitary advertising his wares in the old town, much to the distaste of passers by and particularly those trying to enjoy some traditional blood sausage on the sun-kissed terraces nearby.

As relatively undramatic footage shows, police showed up and asked the man why he had been attempting to get a tan below his bikini line. He at first denied his chicken had ever left the coop, but upon being presented with the incontrovertible evidence of moving pictures, admitted his priapic misdemeanor and explained he had given John Thomas an airing "to amuse his friends".

A night at the opera would have been both cheaper and considerably more edifying for all concerned.

If you are planning a trip to Riga in the near future, please keep your reproductive organs to yourself while strolling the UNESCO-listed heritage site unless instructed otherwise by a credible official.
