I found this in a seemingly normal wine shop.
Me: Explain yourself.
Volker: What the hell is that?
Me: Hello. It comes from your people. You should know.
Volker: Honey Boo Boo comes from your people so you go first.
Me: Well played.
Volker: Are you going to drink it?
Me: I don’t drink cat. I’m allergic.
Volker: Then why did you buy it?
Me: It’s wine in a cat. Who could pass that up? Oh, and I’ve decided to start a bizarre-bottle wine collection.
Volker: When did you decide this?
Me: Just this second. I’m gonna need a wine cellar, one of those refrigerator things, a grape stencil and a couple of those giant barrels.
Volker: Gather up a few different bottles and then we’ll talk.
Me: You think I’m gonna get bored. This is not like the frog-in-yoga-pose collection. After downward frog, they just weren’t that funny.
Volker: I give it a week. We’ve got a lot of collections consisting of one item filling up this house. You should just call them decor at this point or random shit – collection just seems wrong.
Oh, it’s on! So, now I’m in the market for wine in a yeti, frog, shark, alien, and sloth. I think that’s a good start but I’m open to suggestions. Keep your eyes peeled, people. I need to win this one for impulse shoppers everywhere.
American German – language lesson #17
Katzenklo, Katzenklo, ja das macht die Katze froh (cat-zen-klo cat-zen-klo ya das makt dee cat-sa fro) – Cat toilet, cat toilet, yes that makes the cat happy. It’s a famous German song. Sounds a little bit like Jingle Bells. You’re welcome.
