Oktoberfest: Grimm Fairytales

Having already exploited the comedic value of football players in lederhosen for all it’s worth last week, the timing of the release of these photos of the Bayern Munich boys at Oktoberfest couldn’t have been worse.

Fortunately for you (and our legal team’s billing dept) we boast some of the most imaginative and astute minds in football today, and just fifteen minutes in the Mayhem & Fruit Beverages Suite was all it took for these images to be forcibly attached to one of the famed ‘Grimm’s Fairytales’.

Whether it really worked or not is a different story.

Well, that drinking receptacle Thomas Muller is brandishing is clearly big enough to keep a corpse in. We’ve ordered five for the office, y’know.

Well, how else would you describe his coup attempt for the German NT captaincy?

Just a hint, Luiz Gustavo (R). Attempting to look fly when you’re wearing lederhosen, ankle socks and plaid will only result in tears before bedtime. As you have demonstrated in this picture.

Poor Franck. But he fulfils a very specific criteria in our world, and we’d like to think he treats our constant and infantile ribbing about his appearance with the contempt it deserves. So there.

    Even though I am a Borussia Dortmund Fan, I have to admit: Footballers in "Lederhosen" are quite nice to look at. So you have my respect FC Bayern. ;-)

    Unfortunate pic of Mr. Muller's lady, you can see the line of her implant really clearly. I had to point out something catty to make myself feel better!

      Oh my lord I had to go back and look at that pic. That's just gross looking. It also looks like it would hurt or at least be uncomfortable?

      • mata says:

        You would think, and it must feel weird to the touch as well.

        Just love Bale too, by the way, and getting stroppy that we have'nt had a pic of him in some time!
