If ever you have occasion to eat kebabs in Germany, do not wipe your food covered hands anywhere on the seller’s stand even though he won’t let you have any napkins. Doing so may be grounds for receivinga ladle full of hot sauce to the eyes.
Police in the city of Bremen have taken a sample of the sauce in question and are now trying to decide which charges to file.
“Legally, the question of whether the spiciness of the kebab sauce constituted ‘normal’ or grievous bodily harm must be addressed,” police said in one of those sentences that sounds funnier than it actually is.
They went on to say that they are also investigating why in hell a dispute over napkins started in the first place and that when all is said and done, both men could end up charged.
