    In 1923, Adolf Hitler unsuccessfully attempted to take control of the Bavarian government in the rapidly suppressed Beer Hall Putsch.

    Unfortunately, the 1920s being a turbulent time, and not-nearly-as-politically-sophisticated as we are today, this event (in addition to forming the basis of the famed Oktoberfest, where people from all over the world stream to Munich to drink a lot of beer and get into fights) was emulated all around Europe. This was significantly aided by the Nazis' habit of liberally distributing postcards featuring what they claimed to be the incipient dictator at play in a game called "not sie" (not her):

    Funny how these things work, isn't it.

    Fortunately for all those involved, at least for the time being, most surrounding countries did not share Germans' sense of fun when it came to organizing large political events full of uniformed storm troopers stomping around the place, shouting terse guttural phrases at each other. Also, there was a lot less beer involved. And so, the enthusiasm for the less-known "Fish Market Putsch", the "Municipal Transportation Mechanical Maintenance Yard Putsch", the "Rhubarb and Cabbage Weighing Facility Putsch" and the "Some Guy We Met At A Bar And He Was Cool With Us Having A Meeting At His House While His Parents Are Away Putsch" were nowhere near as influential, having disappeared in the mists of history.

    Nonetheless, the "Théâtre Variété Putsch" stands out among historians as one of the most significant upsurges of reactionary National Populist Socialist Democratic Soviet Revolutionary Monarchist Religious Front Brigade Movement activity of the late 1920s.

    Held in a theater locally renowned for such groundbreaking cultural events as the premiere of the comedic play "Look Frau Sigmuller, Herr Doktor Hoffmann's Dog Has Piddled On The Carpet Again", as well as risqué performances like Madame Fat Hilda's Strip-Tease Esemble Of Well-Fed Girls, or the dry-land dadaist re-enactment of the famous waterborne American Ziegfeld Follies (much lauded by critics, but suffering from chronically low attendance - only three people in total bought tickets), the putsch attempted to create an idealized society based on modern scientific principles.

    Unfortunately, these "principles" turned out very rapidly to have been the result of one of the organizers misreading a machine equipment maintenance manual, and so the revolution got off to a wet start as everyone decided to hit the bar instead of overthrowing the government. Peace in Europe would be preserved for generations to come.

    Oh right I'm supposed to stop lying - fine, fine, abandoned employees' theater hall, formerly of a massive industrial components manufacturer gone to seed. More, as always, at Kosmograd dot net.​
