You gotta watch them Swiss

Oh, they act so innocent, with their clocks and their cheese, but they’re big into invasions as well.

What began as a routine training exercise almost ended in an embarrassing diplomatic incident after a company of Swiss soldiers got lost at night and marched into neighboring Liechtenstein.
