Dis­pen­sary Corner

Pharmacy Daily - - News -

WE’VE heard of healthy age­ing, but this may be tak­ing it too far.

A German pen­sioner has been dis­cov­ered in the forest near Ber­lin near the head­less body of a wild boar which he had man­aged to hunt and kill us­ing an axe.

Po­lice came on the ghoul­ish scene late on Sun night af­ter re­ceiv­ing a re­port about a sus­pi­cious ve­hi­cle.

They found the 80-year-old hard at work dis­mem­ber­ing the beast’s body, with the gen­tle­man telling of­fi­cers he was un­able to af­ford good qual­ity boar meat so he de­cided to go right to the source.

Ger­many’s Der Tagesspiegel news­pa­per re­ported that the man was a re­tired butcher.

Un­for­tu­nately he was hunt­ing in a re­stricted area, with po­lice con­fis­cat­ing the an­i­mal’s body and charg­ing the man with crim­i­nal poach­ing.

Now that’s what we call the true def­i­ni­tion of a pork chop. TOO much beer isn’t good for you - but usu­ally it doesn’t cause a bloody in­jury.

Un­for­tu­nately that was the case for a Cal­i­for­nia man who is su­ing the mak­ers of Corona be­cause a bot­tle sud­denly ex­ploded and in­jured him in the leg.

The vic­tim’s lawyer colour­fully de­scribed the pop­u­lar brew as “glass hand grenades”.
