Well it took almost three years, but I think we can stop now. There is no way we are ever going to top this story:
"Police have 'arrested' a Christmas tree in Chisinau...[after they] demanded that the driver of a vehicle carrying the city government’s Christmas tree to the main square, produce a license to purchase fir trees as well as a permit from the State Environmental Inspectorate. Representatives of the country’s Forest Management Association, however, say there is no need for such a permit in this case. But police detained the vehicle nonetheless and then said the fir tree is ‘under arrest.'"
This is the very definition of Eternal Remont.
