Swiss libido

I’ve never really thought of the Swiss as a race with a tendency to indulge in the sort of spontaneous naughties one might imagine of the French and Italians, but a sign spotted in Interlaken, Switzerland might give lie to that opinion. The Jungfrau is a mountain which is one of the several located close to the town, and there is a railway which goes to the summit.

It’s hard to envisage someone being caught short of toys, lube ¬†or prophylactics (as the case may be) on the relatively short trip up the 13,000 foot peak, unless some amorous couple saw it as an opportunity to join the 2.5 mile high club in a toilet at the summit. The words ‘Alpine horn’ come to mind here.
