Real life dialog from a German restaurant



Setting: The Schnitzel Platz restaurant in suburban Glendale Heights.

The occasion: My brother's 42nd birthday.

Myself, MizBubs, my brother's family and our 78 year old mother were seated in the large corner booth of a German restaurant on a relatively quiet Monday night. The adults were consuming liter-sized steins of Spaten and Hofbrau beer.

The restaurant serves at least 14 kinds of schnitzel, and we were discussing what kind of schnitzel we might order. My brother obviously found the phrase "wiener schnitzel" amusing and managed to repeat it several times during the conversation.

Suddenly, my adorable 5 year old niece piped up, her chirpy little voice clearly audible above the restaurant's din:

"Maybe there could be a PENIS SCHNITZEL!"

We all went silent. As did every table within earshot.

Silent until the snorting started I would guess!

Gee, I'd think that "Penis Schnitzel" would be the type of food to Gein more popularity in a Wisconsin restaurant than an Illinois one.

If I was there, I'd have reached 'cross the table and gently taken her hand, a tear in my eye...

There's a German restaurant that's been here for a million years and the best thing they've got on the menu is buffalo wings.

Go figger.

Off Topic, but Nora sent me a new http thingy link for the finals and I posted it and voted, they sent me a confirmation link and I don't think it works. Can you or some techie friend to check it out. Now I'm invested in her winning this thing.

Did I read penis sausage? Mummm. Sounds deliscious.

Utah Savage said...

Ah, it was schnitzel. Well, I like schnitzel too.

You can't stop jin, you can only hope to wear the flesh of her victims.

@ Utah Savage. Did you click the radio button? If not then your confirmation e-mail will not include Nora's name and takes you to an error page. You have to click the little button to the left before voting with the big button.
It took me three tries to figure that out.
Penis. heh heh Penis.

Nothing beats a dick joke from a five year old.

What Gifted Typist said.

I cannot live in Illinois, I'd weigh at least 350 lbs, minimum.

Rahm schnitzel? Paprika schnitzel? Das ist premer, das ist gut!. However, I won't touch anything called "Gypsy schnitzel," it doesn't sound right in any context and I wouldn't touch the "Hawaii schnitzel" either.
