Belgian police sound a lot like the cops in Superbad. Officers patrolling the red light district of Brussels have been ordered to lay off the hookers and booze. "These officers think their duty hours are to be used to drink alcohol in bars, practice sports... visit brothels or massage parlors, and entertain (intimate) relationships with residents of the neighborhood during their patrol," the Belgian police chief wrote in a letter to errant employees. So far, no hedonist policemen have been prosecuted. [Reuters]
I thought it was kind of brilliant on Brussels's part that you can see the red light girls from the train coming in from Amsterdam. It's a not-so-subtle reminder that you can have just as much fun there, if you're into that sort of thing (those girls are kind of busted IMO, poor things in their glows-in-the-blacklight bikinis).
