Baguettes Infested With Mice, Zurich

Window display at a maternity apparel shop, Zurich, 2007

I have to ask: What does pregnancy have in common with baguettes infested with mice?

This was part of a window display for a maternity apparel shop that I spotted in Zurich back in 2007. Does anyone know of a connection? A legend? An old wives’ tale? Or just a way to recycle two-day old bread?

I’m heading to Zurich tomorrow on the Euro Night 414, which provoked a brief search through old images from the Swiss financial capital. I’ll be there for the next week covering the European Championships in Athletics. I haven’t visited since 2012 so am really looking forward to a return engagement. Maybe even a side trip or two. And an investigation into the stale bread-newborn connection.

Today’s Pic du Jour, the 209th (!!) straight, was snapped on 08 Sept. 2007. As always, please click on the image to see the full uncropped version.
