The Czechs take their presidential security a bit less seriously than we do in the U.S. Above is a video of some dude just walking up to Czech President Vaclav Klaus at a public event this past Friday and shooting in the arm a half-dozen times with a toy gun. What's more, Klaus' security entourage let him walk away, arresting him only after he gave an interview about why he shot the president.
The Czech bank Komerční Banka isn't just "a universal bank providing a wide range of services in retail, corporate and investment banking"—it's also a place where you can have satisfying sexual experiences, as this ad proves. The woman featured here just opened up a bank account that charges a low maintenance fee. Just imagine what taking out a loan is like.
Everybody say "dobry den" (that's "hello") to SuperVaclav (not to be confused with Super Vaclav, or OtherVaclav)—the Czech Republic's latest superhero, and the only one we know of whose primary superpower involves smearing dog poop on impolite dog walkers and then running away before he gets his ass kicked.
Czech president Vaclav Klaus embarrassed his country by stealing a pen during an official signing ceremony. But the Czech people have risen up admirably to mock him: More than 5,000 Czechs have signed up on Facebook to mail Klaus pens. According to the Facebook page, participants will send the presidential office writing implements on May 2 because "Mr. president obviously has nothing to write with." [via Daily What; image via AP]
