I have never been, but were I to go, I would stay sober enough to "drink" in all the lovely German girls.

I really need to go back. My only visit to Oktoberfest happened back in 1990, and unfortunately, I was only 11 at the time.


I remember seeing volunteers (maybe employees) at the train station who were helping the really drunk people get on the right trains....and preventing them from falling onto the tracks. There was an older couple where the husband was sloshed, and his sober wife was very embarrassed.

Overpriced shiatshow, and the hot girls in Dirndls are outnumbered by the greasy Italian tourists, the pikey British tourists, and the obnoxiously loud American tourists - not to mention fat sweaty Hermans.

Ah, the sophisticated europeans of which I have heard so much. **eyeroll**

A few years ago they banned smoking from inside the tents at Oktoberfest. One of the major concerns that arose from this was the smell of vomit. Smoke used to cover that up and was less offensive. They almost considered continuing to allow smoking to occur there. Cooler heads prevailed and sawdust was the answer. You may want to avoid the clumpy sawdust piles in and around Oktoberfest.

Everyday I become more convinced that "Planet Earth" reality show exists for the rest of the universe.

for some reason, I read the headline as:

a record number of paralytic drunkards had to be created by the Red Cross at this year's Oktoberfest in Munich

needless to say, i was very confused and intrigued.

I was at the local Oktoberfest Saturday!

/sadly no girls in dirndls.

They're the ones who aren't going fast enough to make it into orbit.

Too much bier, too little schnitzel: a winning combination - until....

Rules for enjoying a visit to Germany and keeping your dignity:

1. when you go out drinking, only go with the Germans.

2. don't try to out-drink the Germans.

If you must get shiatfaced at Octoberfest, go to Scotland.

We were in Munich in July, and let me tell you, the women wearing dirndls during the 'off-season' are NOT the ones you want to see wearing a dirndl.

This is all avoided by 1) avoiding the second weekend of the event, dubbed "Italian weekend" by the locals, and 2) avoiding the Hofbrau tent.

Highlight of my trip was seeing a dude passed out in a tree.

hmm... I'm not so sure... her mug appears to be mostly empty.

Is paralytic a fancy word for push up cleavage?

"The Red Cross had to deal with more than 800 incapacitated binge-drinkers."

Maybe it had more to do with the Red Cross's state of mind.

A German coworker told me at some of the festivals near where he grew up they would take you way up a steep mountain that pretty much guaranteed you would be sober by the time you got back down.
