Fancy having German naming rights for an anti-cyclone? Yours for €299

German soup company Maggi has done just that, and our Teutonic friends will soon be experiencing anticyclone Maggi, and its sunny weather and temperatures of between 11 & 16 degrees centigrade.

If the Germans sell naming rights for less pleasant weather phenomena, I might buy one and name it for Gordon Brown.

And elsewhere, good news for German dachse: dachshund births have dropped by 75% in the last 25 years. Still, the Danish Prince Consort is rather fond of them, as he is the president of the Danish Dachshund League and would like to be re-incarnated as one. Although he is also given to eating dogs, apparently.

selling naming rights to minor weather storms; what a great idea. Very Anglo-Saxon, hwo strange for the Volk to have thought of it first.
