It is Wednesday and we all need a story to give us a laugh, right? Well, this one will do it for you all.
Two elderly gentlemen in Germany were needing a little bit of break from their nursing home so they decided to make a break for it. The two spry men snuck out of the home and made their way to Wacken Open Air, which as it turns out the largest heavy metal concert in the world.
The nursing home employees realized that the two men were missing and alerted the police who quickly found the elderly metalheads. According to the police report, the men were “disoriented and dazed.”
The men were reluctant to leave the four-day festival so police escorted them home with the help of a taxi and a patrol car.
“They obviously liked the metal festival,” police spokeswoman Merle Neufeld told public broadcaster Norddeutscher Rundfunk. “The care home quickly organized a return transport after police picked them up.”
Even Mike Huckabee found the story to be amusing.
Cops found 2 elderly men missing from retirement home at 3am at Wacken Open Air, the world’s biggest heavy metal festival (being the only ones yelling, “Turn it up!”) They were disoriented, dazed & reluctant to leave. That described everyone there!

"Police told the Deutsche Welle the men were found 'disorientated and dazed.'"
So they fit right in, then.

It's probably one of few things they could hear without their hearing aids.😄
