How does this relate to this lovely fruit – the mango?


Well, ever since I started to peel this mango, Dean Martin started singing in my head. You’ve heard his version of “Mambo Italiano”, yah? If not . . .

And, quite coincidentally, I ran across this site:

If you have a moment, take the time to read this. The wording is splendid, and the German words are worth remembering.

Now YOU have der Ohrwurm! And I am free! ;->

    Haha, finally the Americans find some good German words. And thanks for the Ohrwurm, which I have now, cycling around the graveyard, virtual hugs from a German Ohrwurm

    On two different occasions I attended classes in conversational German before a trip to Deutschland, and I’ll have to say that it is so much fun to speak once you decide to just throw yourself into it. I never did get the knack of stringing lots of little words together in one big word though.

    That was fun! And I made it through two screens of the lessons before I realized it stuck as long as I could see the words, but I didn’t remember them when I couldn’t see them!

    And your ohrwurm is so much more fun than mine are! πŸ˜€

    I enjoyed reading the link..very funny and humorous. I always imagined Germans were very serious. Now I see the other side. Have a great weekend!

      That piece just fell in my lap as I was readying the Mango Italiano post! There’s probably a German word-phrase for that phenomenon! ;-> Glad you liked it!


  5. I delighted reading the post and video and thanks for sharing! Have a nice week! πŸ™‚
