Brothers Build Flying Bathtub in Order to Buy Sandwiches

When bathtubs fly.

Crossing farm land and a small pond, the 120-horsepower bathtub drone carried one of the bothers into town on his quest to buy a sandwich. Leaving bystanders bewildered as they looked on at the flying bathtub, the flight and project was fully backed by the German government, and at one point the cashier asks if the flight was a success.
