The Mayor of Venezia is understandably angry.
Not because someone jumped off a bridge,
not because it was the Rialto,
not because the guy was from out-of-town
and not because he was drunk.
The Mayor is angry because the drunk guy from New Zealand had the grave misfortune of landing on a boat.
Remarkably, this guy seems to have survived his failure to land.
I told Kiwi Andrew McHardy
(who alerted me to this story...and who is NOT the subject of it)
that maybe the guy survived because he was from New Zealand
and probably grew up playing rugby.
