  1. Franz Thalhammer:

    A dirndl is something nice, it can make almost anyone pretty. But some of the dresses you see these days are crazy, you go in a tent and it's full of paralytic Australians and Italians and they've forked out €250 ($290) for a complete Bavarian outfit and think they're Bavarians. It's as if I'd walk around half-naked and say I'm Australian.
