Three Men In A Boat


THREE European councillors who sailed from France to Britain on a makeshift raft as a goodwill gesture were arrested when they came ashore... the group had failed to get permission... to cross the busy shipping lane and...the raft was made from six oil drums and a sheet of wood, had out-of-date flares, a broken radio and no life-saving equipment.
But they did try to get permission, according to a member of their UK welcoming committee, Lynn Dockar, manager of the Boulogne and Shepway Co-operation Association:

They had also tried to obtain permission once they left but were unsuccessful.
So they just went on anyway.

People wonder what's wrong with the kids of today. It's their parents.
