For whatever obscure reason, a German research firm has surveyed the people of Germany and discovered that they cry. A lot. 70% of German have had themselves a good cry in the past year.
Eighty-eight percent of women respondents said they have cried recently, according to the poll conducted by the GfK Marktforschung institute, the results of which were published Tuesday.
Almost half of their male counterparts answered in the affirmative.
Asked where and why, most said they have let tears roll at the movies or while watching television.
About a fifth said they have cried out of anger or frustration and eight percent admitted having been driven to tears by their lovers.
We here at Blue Crab Boulevard think people were covering up, though. They didn't really give their true reasons for crying. We're pretty sure we would weep, too, if we had to use a German toilet.
