Here is a tragic picture and article about last month’s Krasna Horka castle fire in Eastern Slovakia:
And just what dreadful plot was capable of burning down an entire castle, you ask? What diabolical army of marauding barbarians? Well, it turns out it was just two boys trying to light a cigarette.
(Given the damage these two kids accomplished without even trying, I don’t think Krasna Horka’s defensive works could have stood up to an invading army for very long! Doesn’t this almost remind you of something from The Far Side by Gary Larson?)
