Lake Zurich’s lovely – what better final resting place?

Zurich

Although it’s not lost on me that this is being treated as an environmental crime.

It is against the law to dispose of a large number of urns without a commercial  licence.

What – they have a specific provision in Swiss laws regarding urns? It must be an endemic problem.

      Bout five bob a week!! Boom boom!

      Last time I heard that was in the film ‘The Colditz Story’ 1955 Lionel Jeffries, Richard Wattis, Ian Carmichael and John Mills.
      Marvelous stuff. My kind of film.

      ‘ I belong to Colditz, dear old Colditz schloss…there’s nothing the matter with Colditz….etc

    Oh and of course it was a Morecombe and Wise staple.

    Ah yes, but the Goon Show variation was a winner as well –

    ‘It is an earthenware vessel used for holding liquids.’
    ‘I wasn’t expecting that answer!’
    ‘Neither were about 2 million smart-aleck listeners.’

    Well they have a specific law in Switzerland about having a pee while standing up (specifically – it’s not allowed after 10pm), so nothing would surprise me, frankly. The place is practically a police state.

      I’d heard that, but was never sure it was anything more than urban myth.

      Is it nationwide or just in particular Cantons?
