Branko’s favourite stories of 2010


It is that time of the year again, the looking-back-at-the-past-12-months-and-saying-what-you-thought-about-it-all time.

I don’t know if it was something in our drinks or the company in which those drinks were drank, but we went out a lot to collect our own news. My favourite of these stories has to be the one about

  1. The house that Hitler built

If only because I had no idea…

In the Lost & Found section, there was the remarkable news about the discovery of

  1. A new painting by Mr Vincent van Gogh

You may also want to relive:

  1. Sex with animals: finally forbidden
  2. Holocaust survivor to receive Dutch apologies (after the death camps we, her own people, bluntly told her she was not welcome in her own country)
  3. Bicycle rush hour in Utrecht
  4. Berbice Dutch from Guyana is now extinct
  5. But also: the last of the Frisian students
  6. Mr. Strubbe will keep using MS-DOS and Wordperfect 5.1 (but a new contender for his computational affections is lurking just past the horizon)
  7. Homeless man discovers his father was a millionaire (and then he gave it all away!)
