70-yr-old granny is brothel bouncer

London: It might sound bizarre, but a 70-year-old grandmother has been hired as a bouncer at a brothel in Berlin.

According to the owner, the granny Waltraud Hotzl, also called ‘Mumsy’ was the perfect choice for the post, for she had no problem turning away drunks and undesirables, who never argue with her.

"She's got the business perfectly under control. Mumsy is far and away the best for the job," quoted Mumsy's boss, Johann Vepsi, at the Fraulein Mueller brothel in Hermannplatz, as saying.

Vepsi further said that she also makes sure that the customers are well behaved, and settles disputes between the prostitutes.

"If she hears of a squabble between the girls, she will shout 'children, all quiet on deck please'. Total silence always follows," she said.
