A few weeks ago Daily RFT
reported about Soulard Oktoberfest
(going on this weekend) and the controversy surrounding the organization's racy advertisements, featuring buxom frauleins
stuffed into kitschy German folk costumes.
Well, turns out that St. Louisans aren't the only ones who've got their lederhosen in a bunch over the outfits worn at today's Oktoberfests.
As the Wall Street Journal
recently reported, traditionalist at the original Oktoberfest in Munich are aghast at the skimpy dirndls
and other costumes worn by younger partygoers at the 200-year-old German festival.
"It's become like Mardi Gras--it's appalling."
