Who are these people?


Who are these people?

Hey... Hi! Sprechen sie Englisch? Great! Yeah, it's my birthday -- woooooo! - yeah, you know, first time. No. Canadian. That's okay, get that all the time. Besides, Americans are liked here, no? "Tear down this wall!" "Ich bin ein Berliner!" Checkpoint Charlie! Eine Kleine nachtmusik! Yeah, no, that's my flatmate - what, no what is that? I'm sure it'll come out. Zwie beers! Do you want one? Shoe-ni-gun, mein herr! Fünf beers. What? Yeah, I know that's five, I just prefer to say Fünf to vier. Fünf, there it is! Fünf, there it is! Ha, ha... So, Willy Brandt? What was he like? Nah, you're too young. The chancellor, man. Willllllly Brandt. Come on! Have you not seen Michael Frayn's Democracy? Man, it's a great play - they should really mount it here, in German or something. You know, we could open up a small theatre in the back here and do it for tourists, like that could be great, really, don't you think. Here, hold on, Colin! Take a picture of the future owners of the Berliner Ensemble II - hey, yeah, we're going to stage all night plays and then serve Brecht-fast in the mornings! Like Berty Brecht, dude, Brecht. Threepenny Opera, dudes, Mother Courage and her Children, art is a hammer, not a mirror, you know -- what the... Are you even from Germany? What were your names again? Holy fuck! I love this song: Peaches! She's Canadian! SIS! IUD! Stay in school! ‘Cause it's the best!

Let's dance!

Fünf the pain away!
Fünf the pain away!
Fünf the pain away!
Fünf the pain away!

Also, when did you get off the fence? Was it just now? If my frisbee goes over onto your side, will you toss it back? Or are you on my side? Wait, was this just a metaphor all along?

I also just noticed the "off the fence" thing too. So what does this mean now that you're off the fence? And what sorts of things were you on the fence about anyway?

p.s. Happy birthday.

The two lost Von Trapp children?
Happy B-Day Big K . . . Is it just me or are they giving a "Heil" in the background . . . Maybe it's just Passover talking . . .
