Flicking idly through the Canberra Times glossy Spring 2005 See Canberra lift out yesterday, I was a little surprised to see this image for the story on Oktoberfest.

Oktoberfest - Canberra style?

What’s Your opinion?

Brings new meaning to the term “crap beer”.

Presumably not for drinking, although the Germans have been known to do odd things…

Maybe the bloke at the back is trying to retrieve his Stein?

Well the racing has… the ‘fest isn’t affected though as I’m sure the Harmonie German Club have their own insurance – though probably not for the activities depicted in the picture above…

I thought all racing in the ACT had been cancelled due to insurance problems?

Interesting to note that they’ve got dates for October in there, despite it now being this weekend due to their inability to book the race course.

Mmmmm, looks erotic 😛

I quite like the caption on the pic too – “Doing it the German way”

looks like that bull is about to get an unpleasant fright….

Trainers, owners & jockeys beware…the Germans have their own ways of deciding the race winner!
