Guess the Nationality



A drunk horse rider rode into a bank foyer to sleep for the night, after having one too many for the road during a stopover at his local tavern.

The dude, age 40, from (?) had been riding with his horse Sammy when he stopped to have a drink with friends.

But when he left the pub he realised he was too drunk to ride all the way home - and because it was cold, he decided to use his bank card to open up a nearby bank foyer and take himself and Sammy inside to sleep it off.

The dude and his horse were found in the early hours of the morning by local man age 36, who came to the bank to take out some money.

He said:
It was a bit of a shock to find a man and a horse asleep in the foyer of the bank. I called the cops straight away.

The dude was let off with a warning and rode home. But bank staff were less than impressed when they arrived and had to clean up after the horse, who had left a deposit of his own on the foyer floor.


Wouldn't the stench of horse poo in a 12x12 entry way have been stomach wrenching to someone sleeping it off????

Only the names of the rider, the breed of horse, and 3 instances of local vernacular were changed to obscure the country of origin.

Guess which country boasts this resourceful fella as a citizen???

lol Nope, it's not Wyoming. Isn't that the state that claims it's god's country? More like hell's hemrhoid.
:D

I'm going with Germany or Spain. People ride horses in Germany and Spain more than any other Western country I can think of. If I had to pick one of the two, the level of alcohol consumption will lead me to say Germany.

Got it in 1 Reed! WAY TO GO!!!

Funnily enough, when I was in Williston, ND I saw a horse tied up outside a bar, standing all 3-legged and bored, poor thing. Daddy was inside boozin' it up and I would have loved to see him climb on his pony bass-ackwards trying to figure out where the head went. (shades of Shanghai Noon). *snerk*

Here's the original article...

A drunk German horse rider rode into a bank foyer to sleep for the night, after having one too many for the road during a stopover at his local beergarden.

Wolfgang Heinrich, 40, from the German town Wiesenburg, had been riding with his Haflinger horse Sammy when he stopped to have a drink with friends.

But when he left the pub he realised he was too drunk to ride all the way home - and because it was cold, he decided to use his bank card to open up a nearby bank foyer and take himself and Sammy inside to sleep it off.

Heinrich and his horse were found in the early hours of the morning by local man Stephan Hanelt, 36, who came to the bank to take out some money.

He said: ¡It was a bit of a shock to find a man and a horse asleep in the foyer of the bank. I rang the police straight away.¢

Heinrich was let off with a warning and rode home. But bank staff were less than impressed when they arrived and had to clean up after the horse, who had left a deposit of his own on the foyer floor.

Germany? Huh. I would have never guessed that! I thought it was either a place like Wyoming or some place in the Outback. (No offense Sean)

T&A,

We are not progressive enough to have banks with card access foyers :)

And Aussies don't ride horses they ride kangaroos. Everyone knows that!!!!

The part where they would be used as alternative public toilets :) Seriously I have seen them in the more civilized parts of my country.
