You think you had a bad day?

Well, compared to what happened to these people, I bet it was pretty good:
A village in the German state of Bavaria is recovering after being flooded with liquid pig manure.

A tank containing the fetid fertiliser burst, sending a deluge of porcine waste into the courtyards and streets of Elsa, police said.

The sewage was half a metre (1.6ft) deep in places.
That's fucking disusting. Anyway, I'm not sure if something was lost in translation in the following, but get a load of the classic German understatement:
"It was not very pleasant for the villagers," Volker Munk of Coburg police told the BBC News website.
Well, Volker, thanks for clearing that up for me.
