It turns out you can just fly over them.

The world's longest tunnel, which the Swiss have dug through the Alps, is being hailed as the 'feat of the 21st century' even though the 21st century still has some way to go. This has angered a lot of people.

"Say, in thirty years, I personally instigate world peace..." says 3-year-old Timmy Tucker, who hopes to be a peacemaker when he grows up, "...people will still not be able to say it was the 'Greatest feat of the 21st century' because the damn Swiss have already taken the moniker for their tunnel." 3-year-old Timmy Tucker has a very good vocabulary.

The Swiss, who are believed to be from Switzerland, responded through this statement.

"Give up. Don't bother attempting anything. You cannot achieve anything greater than our hole."

A note, sent from the future, has today reached the Swiss. It reads, "Damn you. I invented a time machine in 2067 and Wikipedia still says your tunnel was the 'Feat of the 21st Century'. For that, you don't get the secret of immortality. Stick that in your tunnel you neutral bastards!"
