Wie geht's, schnucki.

NoMich needs you to write him a seminararbeit schnell. In English.

He has to get a good grade this semester.

That's my fault. I was waiting for a pizza yesterday and walked over the the German bar next door for a litre of kolsch. BenjaminLeo must have seen me.

Is German beer served at room temp in the Great Basin?

Maybe BenjaminLeo is Affleck and DiCaprio pranking us because we're so...influential.

If my personal experience is a guide, at age 67, Sobotka isn't putting out brush fires or writing his name in the snow with his urine stream. I don't know why they had to terminate him for dribbling into a floor drain that goes to a sewer.

I think the sport has gotten too damned American. Any man with a drop of French blood would question what the problem was. That drain is a lot nicer than some of the impromptu pissoires I saw in my youth.

I know Sobotka can get a job with Detroit municipal services. If he can operate a snow plow and is willing to branch off the main thoroughfares and go into neighborhoods, the underserved snowbound residents wouldn't care if he was driving naked, slamming Stroh's and lighting farts out his ass as long as he cleared their streets.
