Prague’s Bogus Super Hero
One year ago, Prague’s petty crime scene was profoundly shaken up by a local super hero who intervened at the grass-roots level to fight parking offenders, smokers, people urinating in public and dog owners who let their pets pollute green spaces. He was known only as Super Václav – Václav being a typical Czech given name that is borne by Czech saints on the one extreme and presidents on the other, and that is usually translated as Wenceslas. I am not sure, though, if a name like “Super Wenceslas” could possibly go viral in English media …
Watch some of his feats and judge yourself:
What a bummer!
