‘HOW many people can you fit inside a Volkswagen Polo? Now imagine they’re German. Same answer?

What about if you throw in a Shetland pony?

Dutch police have fined a German driver after spotting a Shetland pony crammed in the back of his Polo hatchback.

”The small Shetland pony had no room to move and his head was pressed against the window,” police said on Thursday. A woman on the back seat held the animal by a rope.

Police fined the 42-year-old driver 220 euros for improper transport of the animal, just bought on a local Dutch market.’
