A German restaurant operator has run into trouble with local tax authorities because he makes larger-than-average schnitzels.

Hmmmm.....wouldn't "larger than average pieces of veal" actually be called "beef"?

Just wondering....

The tax authorities found the leftovers re-vealing.

So then it's true what they say..size does matter.

Send that schnitzel to Klipnocky!

(I have no idea what that means, but it sounded good)

Gerhard Kaltscheuer said his giant schnitzels are popular in the town of Hammerbruecke...

because some people just can't get enough of
Gerhard Giant Schnitzel

ach du lieber!

"If I served the customers smaller portions at the normal price like that, I wouldn't have any customers because that wouldn't fill them up," Kaltscheuer told Reuters. He said he makes his portions large because his customers are laborers.

Typical customer shown here

I can still recall Schultz saying how much he
loved the schnitzel!

The wurst is yet to come.

Fo' schnitzel.

Actually, I think I read somewhere a sequel to this, which said the schnitzels were not veal but human flesh, more specifically some tax officials who assessed the restaurant owner last year.

It's nobody's business how big your schnitzel is. Especially the government's.

from "Blazing Saddles":
Lili Von Shtupp: Would you like another schnitzengruben?
Bart: No, thank you. Fifteen is my limit on schnitzengruben.
Lili Von Shtupp: Well, then how about a little...
[whispers in his ear]
Bart: Baby, please! I am not from Havana.

Is das nicht der schnitzel hugen
Ja das ist der schnitzel hugen
Schnitzel hugen

I pinched off a larger-than-average schnitzel myself earlier.

The bloglettes always shout:

Hey, I got your larger than average schnitzel right here.

Ist das nicht ein pair of pants?
Ja das ist ein pair of pants.

Ja dat's underwear from France.

Oh, du sch�ne

Oh, du sch�ne

Don't have a cow, man.

You do not tax .... Das Überschnitzel!

Off to Babelfish to translate "Tar and feathers; some assembly required" into German...

Sounds like a bad pickup line. "Hey baby, my schnitzel is so big it has its own tax."
