Our European pals were so intently preparing to say auf Wiedersehen to the recently ill George H. W. Bush that they mistakenly printed his obituary!
A respected weekly German magazine, Der Spiegel, broadcasted the former president's death just hours after a Houston area hospital discharged the 88-year-old from intensive care because his health was improving.
Wow! How does a mistake like that make it to print?!
Even worse, the mag called Georgie a "colorless politician" who only seemed like a passable president when compared to his son!
Whoa! We aren't sure why the magazine got its lederhosen in a knot, but insulting the dead is TACKY!
And when they're still alive and kicking… that's just weird!
