I DIDN’T really understand all the excitement about Oktoberfest until I saw these photos from an article on The Telegraph (via FlipBoard on the iPad) announcing the opening of Oktoberfest 2011 in Munich, Germany.
Now I at least have a little appreciation of why men from all over the world are drooling to experience it.
As for the ladies… well, I guess they love the idea of drooling men. After all, beer possesses this wonderful effect of making all women look uniformly gorgeous. That’s not to say that the ladies going to Oktoberfest are not gorgeous, however. Judging from these photos lots of them are, in fact, blissfully gorgeous.
What is still fuzzy to me, however, is the significance or connection of cleavage to beer during Oktoberfest. Surely, for something that’s been going on for ages there must be a scientific explanation to it.
After downing a few bottle of beers I guess I’m ready to give it a try (postulating a theory, that is).
The only logical theory I can come up with looking at these photos is this: During Oktoberfest, and probably only on Oktoberfest, both beer and cleavage are high in supply as well as high in demand, and presumably cheap.
Now that surely smashes the age-old Law of Supply and Demand, doesn’t it?
Note: I grabbed the photos from The Telegraph via Flipboard on the iPad without permission. But in the spirit of Oktoberfest I sure hope they don’t mind.
