Oktoberfest nurse in fairground porn shoot outrage

'Sociological experiment' ends in the cells

The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

Three Italian visitors to Munich's legendary Oktoberfest came away with more than a hangover last week when they were entertained by the sight of a nurse pleasuring herself with a sex toy in a Ferris wheel gondola while two men armed with a video camera looked on.

The shocked trio immediately reported the outrage and police swiftly cuffed the perpetrators, later identified as a 21-year-old registered nurse, a 25-year-old university student and a 30-year-old political sciences teacher.

Rather brilliantly, the smutmongers explained that they had been "engaged in a sociological experiment to measure public responses to unexpected behaviour", which sounds like a plausible defence for just about everything from full-on rumpy-pumpy in Trafalgar Square, to picking up an old lady's irritating and yapping pet poodle and drop-kicking it under the wheels of a bus.

It might also provide a get-out for Steve "Ballistic" Ballmer after his expletive-peppered chair-throwing outburst - but only, of course, if effing and blinding and chucking furniture is in fact "unexpected behaviour" down at Redmond and not, as we suspect, de rigeur for MS execs when faced with the Google menace.

Back in Munich, meanwhile, we're not certain what happened to the gondola romp threesome. Twelve hours of enforced exposure to a traditional, lederhosen-clad oompah band ought to set them back on the straight and narrow. ®
