    Talking Croatian "Knight" Fails Badly

    http://www.croatiantimes.com/news/Ar...910/Knight_Out_

    A would-be knight who tried to woo a maiden by riding into her home on a horse is facing five years behind bars for aggravated breaking and entry.

    Lovelorn Jan Rudnicki, 40, hatched the scheme to bowl over divorcee Gosia Domoslawska after a night's drinking down his local bar in Jarnoltowka, Poland.

    But terrified Gosia, 36, dialed 999 when her drunken suitor - stripped to the waist - galloped up her garden path and smashed his way through the front door like a battering ram.

    "He’s a loon. I was at home watching TV with my daughter when I heard this deafening crash and suddenly this half-naked man on a horse appeared in my front room," she said.

    "I never fancied him before and I certainly don’t now. If this was supposed to win my heart he must be seriously off his rocker," added Gosia.

    Pal Mirek Nowak explained: "At first we thought Jan was joking. But then he went outside, climbed onto this horse - which he’d ridden to the pub - and set off bare-breasted and bare-backed.

    "The next thing we knew, he’d been arrested."

    Now the divorced dad-of-seven Jan has apologised and offered to replace the door.

    But a police spokesman said: "Smashing into someone’s home uninvited is a crime and he will be punished for it."

    I wonder what "hey y'all watch this" translates to in Coatian.

    LOL! Hard to believe people are this stupid.

    Must say, though, that last line is a bit interesting. "Smashing into someone's home uninvited is a crime."

    How often are people invited to smash into someone's home?

    With what phrase does a fairy tale traditionally begin?

    "Once upon a time,..................."

    With what phrase does a Southern fairy tale begin?

    "Here, hold my beer and watch this!"

    Mr. Rudnicki has relatives here, I think.

    too funny how closely the name looks like redneck -

    Rudnicki = redneck.

    That was / is a myth started by the Germans, the usual true story is the Polish cavarly attack German light forces (scouts and infantry units) and where thenthey were attacked by the panzer. I know off topic, but I am a cavalry bluff.

    That is one of the craziest ideas I have ever heard, drunls can be funny and a pain in the rear regardless of where they are.

    Why does the thread title say "Croatian"? The event happened in Poland. Rudnicki is a Polish name. What's the Croatian connection?

    From google translate, Red could be translated as "Rudy" and Neck could be translated as "Nek"

    Of course, the guy typing with a witz/wicz in his last name thinks the OTHER translations with szcyw all jumbled up are probably a bit more accurate
    Nudging "Almost Heaven" a little closer still...

    The horse looks good, but the guy could have sucked in his belly for the photo!
