Bahkauv

Aachen's very own local monster. Aachener men, after having downed one too many drinks of choice, would make their way back home and fumble all over the streets. Some would fall over and cut themselves. Not wanting to admit their inebriation, they slowly came up with the myth of the monster with sharp teeth and scaly skin, climbing from the sewers. The monster would climb the backs of the men and demand to be carried all the way. The more the men struggled, the heavier the beast would get and tighter would be its grasp. Women and children were never attacked.

Hmmmm! One too many would be when I was incapable of thinking up an excuse, Ayush.
Ayush Basu: Precisely the point, Ray - the excuse has been made up already and you only need to deploy it grin
Quite an interesting excuse Ayush.
Ayush Basu: Very original, Richard tongue

hhah!! A good story! I will remember that next time I'm in a similar position wink
Ayush Basu: A unifying thread for men across the globe, Alan smile
A likely story!
Ayush Basu: I wonder what was the reaction once this story was narrated, Tom! grin
Well he does have sharp teeth here. Leave it to the men to come up with that story.
Ayush Basu: Haha, I agree, Jacquelyn. I would say this is a unifying thread among men across national/cultural/lingual borders.
That is very nice.
Ayush Basu: Thank you, Michael.
it's a great sculpture and an even greater tale Ayush....petersmile

I love this point of view. And what a story, who believes in fairy tales grin..... wink
Ayush Basu: Men with alcohol fuelled imagination can be trusted to come up with such stuff, Astrid grin
