Alcohol-enhanced airbag frenzy

The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

Bulgaria looks set to become a mecca for EU citizens looking to pump up their airbags without surgery following the lifting of customs duty on Boza beer - reputed to have magical breast-boosting properties.

According to Ananova, men are "flocking" over the Bulgarian border to pick up a few cases of the fermented wheat flour wonder brew. Romanian Constantin Barbu, who crossed the Danube in search of Boza in the Bulgarian town of Ruse, said: "I've bought a case for my wife to try out. I really hope I see an improvement."

Landlord Klaus Schmidt, from the ski resort of Schladming, said he was planning a Boza-acquisition raid in the near future. He explained: "I had heard of Boza before but it was always so expensive once the tax was added. But now that's gone I'm going to start offering the drink to my après-ski customers." ®
