It has been reported that part of Germany accidentally spilled over the border with Poland last week, covering over 10 square miles of Polish territory.
"It's all rather embarrassing, and we're terribly sorry" said German Chancellor Angela Merkel. "This sort of thing seems to happen to us all the time. Normally the border keeps it in but occasionally a bit escapes. We used to send troops across to bring it back, but due to the language problem things sometimes got out of hand".
It is expected that Polish engineers will take a week to push the land back over the border.
While unusual, this phenomenon is becoming increasingly common. Last July a Spanish mountain slipped across the border into France and had to be coaxed back, and as recently as last month a small Greek island disappeared for three days and refused to say where it had been and what it had done when it returned.
