Buttiholz' primary language is German.

I always thought farting sounded alot like German.

The sidenotes indicate Grosswangen abuts Buttiholz.

Is that close to Cornholz?

Is it in the middle of the county seat? Lots of politicians head up to Buttiholz for weeks at a time.

Snork @ Siouxie!

Buttiholz would mean Butt of Wood in German.


Dave, you are now officially my 13-year-old son's favorite Pulitzer Prize-winning author.

Reminds me relatedly of this establishment I visited in Salem, Mass. a few weeks ago.

SW - I went in there (as it were) on a visit to Salem a few years ago. It was surprisingly clean.....

I've been on this blog too long. When I looked at the picture of the Salem, Mass. establishment I didn't even notice the name,at first, because I was looking to see how much they charged for beer.

Indeed. The German word "fahren" means to travel. When you say "He travels" or "She travels" in German, the verb form is "fahrt." Yes, it's pronounced just like "fart" (though the "r" is softer, so it would be more like a British person saying "fart".)

At least that's how I remember it from German language class over 30 years ago. It's possible that "fahren" could well mean "to fart" and the teacher only told us that it meant "to travel" so that he could snicker when we translated "He travels on the bus."

I need TP 4 my Bungh0le!

Google Translate says:

"He travels on the bus" -> "Er reist auf den Bus."
"He rides the bus" -> "Er fährt mit den Bus."
"He farts on the bus" -> "Er furzt auf den Bus."

Sorry, spazz.

I'm certainly not goint to etc.

...spellcheck etc.

any word on the florida marlin game where the first so many thousand fans got vuvuzelas? does anyone think this was a good idea? / end ot

Referees are wearing ear plugs...maybe the vuvuuss induce ties, because the score is currently 5-5.

Apparently, they held a concerto after the ballgame.

Soccer is a toothache of a game. They need hockey rules, body checking, fights and use hard rubber balls that can cause some damage. Then you might have something worth watching.

Happy Father's Day to Dave and all the other dads out there.
