As Malabarista and Yarreau know, I'm a Currywurst addict.
I'm a folk singer addict, too. (Bel, what's that guy's name who isn't as good as Hannes Wader?)
Knut Kiesewetter? Not sure, it's been a while since you last did your Friday folk night.
Millions of singers aren't as good as Hannes Wader...
Did you know that Currywurst is the favourite food of former German chancellor German Schröder?
You mean Gerhard? (I nearly wrote Helmut there. )
Oh the wee FDP lunatic?
I think you may mean Guido?
Maybe...Was he a wee FDP lunatic?
Err - yes. http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guido_Westerwelle
(And yes, millions of singers aren't as good as Hannes Wader. )
Isn't Guido Westerwelle the new Luebke?
I like Currywurst, too. And pommes. But no mayonnaise, please.
At the risk of breaking Germany up, has anyone noticed that Currywurst in Koeln is totally different from Currywurst in Goettingen?
I've been in Cologne two times but never had a currywurst there. I've never been to Göttingen.
That song is great.
How is Currywurst different in Goettingen? I've only ever eaten it in Koeln (and Bonn and environs).
You should go there. There are cute wee FDP'ers to flirt with.
I'm just joking.
But a NRW currywurst is usually a Bratwurst, and up north it's a big, big Bockwurst. You need a heavy appetite to eat a sausage that size!
Oh, yeah, I'd rather have a Bratwurst, anyway, for the taste.
Has anybody tried to make Dr Z eat a Currywurst?
Hey, that's not funny.
I don't like this "war" between vegetarians and corpse eaters.
to look up "Wader Wecker Mey"
I have no interest in war.
But I have wondered how in the world you survive in Germany on a vegetarian diet.
Gluten-free is possible, ja. But vegetarian?
When I was a student in Bonn, I would go to a restaurant once a week. This place was called 'The Pantry', and amazingly, it was modelled after a Pennsylvania restaurant chain called the Dutch Pantry.
They had salads. I mean, real salads, not a half-cup of riced turnips and carrots. The only other place in town you could get a cucumber back then was at an Italian place...
Salads are ok, but "salad bars" are another matter entirely. You know those ones where anyone can stick their hands in? You get them in Wholefoods and so on.
Christ, they are a recipe for food poisoning, and I speak from experience.
I actually meant Gerhard Schröder, sorry.
