Two Germans needed hospital treatment after they fought a pitched battle in a supermarket with salamis used as clubs and a chunk of Parmesan cheese brandished like a dagger.




The fight took place in the western city of Aachen when a 74-year-old man and a 35-year-old woman both laid claim to a shopping trolley on Saturday.
As the pensioner wrestled the cart from the hands of his rival, her 24-year-old brother stepped forward and floored him with a punch.
Together with their 53-year-old mother, the brother and sister then took the trolley into the supermarket. But the OAP came round and followed them to the cheese counter.
He clubbed the younger man with a salami as his mother tried to fend him off with a sharp 4lbs piece of Parmesan.
The pensioner then pushed the woman down on to a glass countertop on which she cracked her head.
Police arrived to break up the melee. Two of those involved were treated in hospital for minor injuries.
The trolley was undamaged.
A police spokesman said a sudden rush of shoppers on the last-but-one Saturday before Christmas had depleted the supermarket's trolley reserves and "raised tensions" between the would-be customers.

So hang on. A 25 year old man Punched a 74 year old OAP in the face over a trolley, and his 54 year old mum and his sister thought it a reasonable enough act to carry on shopping???

Oh dear, my son's friends from Aachen are coming over after Xmas. I expect any salami or parmesan will be confiscated by customs though.

Must have been a bit like the Monty Python sketch when they were slapping each other with fish. The Germans usually back away from confrontation so it must have been a lot of tension there.

I suppose the custard pies were sold out as they are over Christmas? Let that be a warning - stock up early with custard pies.

I am surprised the incident didn't happen in Belguim. Germans seem to love to do their blitzkrieg'ing there!
