          Reading the article tells one why....

          "The Hirsebreifahrt, or millet porridge trip, is celebrated every ten years.
          It recalls Zurich's attempt in 1576 to cement its alliance with Strasbourg,
          which doubted that the distant Swiss city could ever bring speedy enough
          aid."
