Bar Lucky - a Sea Shanty



What shall we do with Hitler's birthplace,
what shall we do with Hitler's birthplace,
what shall we do with Hitler's birthplace,
earlie in the morning?

    1. It is at this point, my fellow Europeans, that I feel I should add some context to this post.

      Mine Fuehrer's nativity site is currently undergoing a planning application to turn it into a BLOCK OV FLETS!

      NIX BLAUEN PLAQUE! It is en outrage.

      My Jewish (100%, unlike me) Brother-in-Law was most perplexed when his Austrian fellow holiday makers went on a little day-trip to this place, but left him at the breakfast table, for fear of offending his sensibilities.

      "Two Martinis, if you please".

      "Dry Martinis?"

      "NEIN! ZWIE, DOMMPKOPF!"

    2. 'Mein' - not 'Achtung! - Minen!'.

    3. Hippo would know the difference.

  2. Dry, nein zwei. Very droll. I'm with John, you are mad as a sack of cut snakes.

    Just pay your dealer full sticker and get the right part fitted to your bloody Volvo so that normal service can resume.

    1. The part is made by Pierburg - a German company. My German scout in the field got message to me this morning that the pump will cost 485 Euros from Bremerhaven - about 100 more than it would cost me here in the Motherland, and about 200 Euros more than it would cost to have sent from the USA.

      VAS????!!!!!!

    1. Don't worry John - he's not talking chickens.

    2. Trouble is, he's not talking turkey either.

  5. 485 Euros? Definitely shag the bar maid and get used to walking home.

    1. Are we talking interior decor, or fine art? Either would be appropriate.

    2. He seemed to be better at house painting than painting houses...though this could be hindsighted prejudice.

    3. I wouldn't mind having one of his crappy paintings to sell though.

  7. Not sure you'd be light as a feather.

    See? I do read your shit.

    And by the way, who really gives a toss what they do with Herr Hitler's birthplace. There's still far too much lingering angst in the world as it is.

    1. That was the reasoning for dropping Bin Laden into an unspecified but large patch of the ocean. I don't even know which ocean.

      Delete
    2. Well, if it was the Americans that did the dumping, I am sure it was the biggest ocean they could safely fly over. Lake Superior?

      Delete
    3. It's illegal to drop Bin Liners in US waters... ok, sorry...

      Delete
    4. Into US waters, not in. Aren't you guilty of pulling us up for sloppy grammar? Most recently John Gray?

    5. I quote Richard Brautigan - 'In Watermelon Sugar'. 'Into Aspic' just doesn't work.

      Anyway, I'm off to night school.

  8. P.S. - 'Bar Lucky' is the name of the pub next door. If it were mine, I would call it 'Bar Mitzvah'.

  9. Könnte ich ein Glas trockener Weißwein bitte?

  10. Hilarious! I am glad that you are having so much fun with my 'oh so lovely' language.

    Achtung! John needs to be updated on the barmaid with the angel wings.
