This picture could save you £60


Apparently a German police officer has been suspended because he accepted a picture of a woman's bottom in lieu of a fine.

Now, if this can happen in a disciplined country like Germany, maybe, just maybe, it could happen here. Where we live, we have no parking rights, no drive, no garage. There are some free parking spaces, without time limits, but otherwise we have to play an ongoing game of parking roulette with the local traffic wardens, moving cars every two hours, switching number plates (only joking), wondering which of us (the TW or us) will reach the car first (there is also the problem of forgetting where you've parked the car, but that's another matter).

But - if I fill my pockets with a selection of spicy pictures, do you think it's possible that I could trade them in rather than receive a ticket? (Worse than a ticket is a speeding course. I've been on one of those, and believe me, it makes watching paint dry positively thrilling.)

Just a thought.

  1. Oh you naughty girl. Love it! Pity you're not an MP, or you might get away with it.

  2. If I had a bottom like the one in the picture I'd probably hand out photos whether I owed a fine or not!

  3. What I want to know is... Does it have to be of my bottom? You know what it like when you get to a certain age and what with sitting at my keyboard, my bottom isn't quite the same as it use to be. I must say Frances you have kept your bum very nice. May I ask what's your secret horse riding?

    1. I never look at my bottom, Jarmara, and no, it's not mine (at least, I don't think it is...).

    1. In which case, can I borrow your bottom, Teresa? I suspect mine's past its best.

  5. If a skinny bum like that can get a person off a fine, I should be able to get away with quite a lot if I photographed mine.
