This was pretty sweet I thought as traveling in this country can get quite expensive.

"Bake your own bus ticket"

Long-distance bus company Matkahuolto is offering customers the chance to travel for using unusual tickets this Tuesday. All they have to do is bake some gingerbread and present it at a ticket office before embarking on their journey.

On Tuesday 17 December, passengers can use gingerbread biscuits as bus tickets, so long as the departure point and destination are clearly marked (for example in sugar icing) and the biscuit is home-made and completely edible. The tickets available to gingerbread bakers are limited in number--just 500 are available across the country--but they can in principle be used to travel more than 800 kilometres, from Helsinki in the south to Rovaniemi in Lapland.

chuckle.gif Years ago I made a ginger bread bus for my bus driver. He used to take me home all the way to the door since I was the last passenger of his route. beercheer.gif

I guess maybe the bus driver? scream.gif

Seriously, who in their right mind would want to drug their driver? damned.gif

chuckle.gif I think the ginger breads will probably be saved for a photo op later.

That would be nice a photo op. What I meant was there is no inspection of sanitary practices being performed. I sure would not like to eat someone's hair along with my gingerbread person. Ewwww.
