AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - Thousands of sports shoes washed up onto a Dutch island Friday after a passing container ship lost part of its cargo, attracting hundreds of local residents anxious to find their size.

Nine containers from the Hamburg-bound ship drifted ashore on the island of Terschelling after an overnight storm, packed with shoes, aluminum briefcases, toys and hamburgers. [more]


  1. It occurred to me: what if the story contains a typo, and really the containers lost en route to Hamburg were packed with “shoes, aluminum briefcases, toys and Hamburgers”?

  2. I hope amidst the plenty of shoes and toys someone remembered to take care of the container of smuggled Chinese.

  3. This does clear up the myster why I hardly see aluminum briefcases anymore: they've all been imported to Hamburg.
