Socks and Sandals to be made illegal by Summer 2019

New law proposals were approved this morning that would ban the wearing of socks with sandals in all public places by as early as next summer.

The bill was passed in the chambres des deputies with an overwhelming 94% vote in favour.

Checks at the gare as well as border controls will become stricter.

Extra security checks in supermarket parking areas are also expected to begin by May next year.

Heavy fines and possible custodial sentences for repeat offenders will be given to anyone of any age wearing this monstrosity.

You have been warned.

Luxembourg Police reveal 2017 Halloween party costumes 

Luxembourg Police announced earlier this morning their new design for their annual Halloween party. 

The chief of Police was said to be extremely happy with the new design and said that they may even decide to wear the costumes permanently in the future because he described them as “really comfy”. 

The design, based on a Peugeot lion that had gone crazy and prowled the streets of Luxembourg looking for callef (baby cow) victims, had apparently caused a big laugh in the offices and the Police cells alike, is sure to be a big success. 

Expect to see a fresh fashion parade walking the streets near you soon!

Child Protection Services called after parents refuse to buy designer bag

Luxembourg’s child protection services were called today after an incident on the Grand Rue in the centre of the city.

Police and child care workers were called to the Louis Vuitton shop around lunchtime to assist a teenager in distress. With the beginning of the new school year starting on Monday, the 14 year old girl wanted a brand new bag, priced at 1,400 euros to go to school with.

Realising that the bag would just be thrown around and dumped on the floor regularly, her parents refused to buy the bag and so authorities were called.

“We already got her the new iPhone 7 this week and now she wants a ridiculously over-priced bag,” said the girl’s Father as he was taken away by Police.

The girl was led away by carers to go to a care home while the parents will remain in custody for questioning.

The shop owner was unavailable for comment.
