Okay guys, I know my last name is Gierschick, but that doesn't make me a German scholar...

>cheers wwh: Pujol could "inhale" as much as two quarts of air (as measured by Dr. Marcel Baudouin in 1892) through his distended bottom

I'm not feeling too well.

> Jedes Bönchen gibt ein Tönchen.
It looses a lot in translation:
Every little bean, makes a little tone (noise)
It's the German equivalent of
'Beans, beans they're good for you're heart, beans, beans they ...'

> a German scholar
Rapunzel, if that's what one were to learn as a German scholar then you'd want to stick to Latin!

Bäckermeister Pompey' was the first to create this bread by accident somewhere along the Rhine valley centuries ago. He forgot about his bread and over-cooked and the oven cooled. Pretty soon this became famous
Aha! This can't be true. You don't make Pumpernickel by burning bread! It's a combination of whole-grain flowers and coloring ingredients (molasses and such). The only thing burnt bread is good for is counteracting poison.

Did I say 'burning' ... well I meant cooking it for a long time. Have you made Pumpernickel often Blanche?

Mor-mor said "Burnt bread, especially the crust, is good for your singing voice."

Right. Eat a live frog, too - after that, the day can only get better
