Austria Threatened by Apple-Berg

It turns out that Austria's apple growers are also victims of the counter-sanctions recently imposed by Vlad the Terrible in the form of a new diet plan for Russia. How could you, Vladimir Vladimirovich? Haven't the Austrian's dutifully signed off on South Stream, in a rare display of political sanity?

As the Austrian press reports, a cunning plan to blunt Putler's perfidious revenge on the EU is in the works:


“Russia's import ban for perishable foodstuffs also hits Austria, minister of agriculture Rupprechter calls for more fruit and vegetable consumption.


In Austria, agriculture minister Andrä Rupprechter wants to primarily boost domestic consumption, as according to a report in the “ORF Morning Journal” [local TV station, ed.],  local fruit growers are already feeling the effects of the lack of exports to Russia: Thus prices for apples have declined already prior to the main harvest. Rupprechter calculated the losses for Austria's agricultural and food sector overall to amount to 4.5 m. euro as last week  already, the report stated further.

Austria's population could however help, by focusing its consumption on domestic fruit and vegetables. “If everybody eats one additional apple per week, we could handle losing this market”.


(emphasis added)

Say no more! Austrians undoubtedly stand ready to attack this unexpected addition to their food supply.

Dear Readers!

You may have noticed that our so-called “semiannual” funding drive, which started sometime in the summer if memory serves, has seamlessly segued into the winter. In fact, the year is almost over! We assure you this is not merely evidence of our chutzpa; rather, it is indicative of the fact that ad income still needs to be supplemented in order to support upkeep of the site. Naturally, the traditional benefits that can be spontaneously triggered by donations to this site remain operative regardless of the season - ranging from a boost to general well-being/happiness (inter alia featuring improved sleep & appetite), children including you in their songs, up to the likely allotment of privileges in the afterlife, etc., etc., but the Christmas season is probably an especially propitious time to cross our palms with silver. A special thank you to all readers who have already chipped in, your generosity is greatly appreciated. Regardless of that, we are honored by everybody's readership and hope we have managed to add a little value to your life.
