The Nitty Gritty

Some of you may recall the 'incident' between two super powers that nearly launched the globe into World War III.

ZURICH, Switzerland - What began as a routine training exercise almost ended in an embarrassing diplomatic incident after a company of Swiss soldiers got lost at night and marched into neighboring Liechtenstein.

According to Swiss daily Blick, the 170 infantry soldiers from the neutral country wandered more than a mile across an unmarked border into the tiny principality early Thursday before realizing their mistake and turning back. [...]

Just this morning more information has been released concerning the precursor to the invasion. Four days previous, a tourist from Liechtenstein was arrested for kicking sand on Christa Rigozzi, a Swiss sunbather, at a beach on Lake Geneva. The perpetrator was released due to diplomatic immunity.

The evidence:

Christa was made stronger by the incident, however. She is Switzerland's entry in the 2007 Miss Universe Pageant.

The bully is now the Liechtenstein ambassador to Sudan. Peace has been restored.
