Kindlifresserbrunnen!

A while back I visited some friends in Switzerland, and as all good hosts do, they took me to their favourite sights. We visited Lake Geneva, took the cable car up Mt Niesen to have dinner at one of the highest restaurants in the world, and … paid a quick visit to the Kindlifresserbrunnen – a 16th century fountain with a statue of an ogre eating little children! (look closely at the picture:  he actually has a naked child stuffed into his gob!)

Australia has a dog on the tuckerbox. Switzerland has a child-devouring ogre!
