Don't Disturb the Squirrels

In 1993 city officials in Cologne, Germany imposed a new regulation on people jogging through the city park. Runners were required to pace themselves to go no faster than six mph. Any faster, the city officials cautioned, could disturb the squirrels who were in the middle of their mating season.

Perpetrated by Westdeutsche Rundfunk, a Cologne radio station, in 1993.
