The so-called "Old Guys" might just have a trick or two up their sleeve that could make the younger generation look a bit silly!
The Captain of Köpenick
In October 1906, the unemployed German cobbler Wilhelm Voigt made his move. He pulled on his military captain’s uniform—purchased from a thrift store—and walked out onto the street, right into the path of a group of German grenadiers. Ordering them to halt, Voigt took control of the company and marched them to the town hall of Köpenick (a suburb of Berlin), where he arrested the mayor and the treasurer on charges of embezzlement.
He also stole 4,000 marks while he was at it, before disappearing with the loot. Nine days later, Voigt was arrested by the police and sentenced to four years in prison. But he was released after only two years, when Kaiser Wilhelm pardoned him due to swelling public opinion of the impostor; Voigt had become something of a cult figure for humiliating the gullible German army.
Oh, just in case I forgot to mention it, sometimes the "Old Guys" have stones that would put many of the younger guys to shame! I mean, this ol' boy was a COBBLER, for goodness sake! Guess he caused a lot of red faces in the PTB, ya know? Maybe that's a sign that the oldsters still might have a lesson or two that they could teach!
Coffee out on the patio this morning sounds good to me...how about you?
