Update: Here’s a link to Heeb as we care any way but subtly.
Froylein: Why is “I was somehow expecting Kelsey to do a cameo appearance” a tag?? That should be in the post, no? That way we can link to Heeb and send them some love, no? Also I saw the film. I didn’t expect Kelsey doing a cameo because what would Kelsey be doing in a UK film? New York Jews kinda look down on the UK and Europe in general, no? Just askin’
It’s in the tags cause I put it there. 🙂
I was expecting Kelsey to do a Wilders-impersonation, but you’re right in that they [gross generalisation ahead] tend to turn their noses up when it comes to Europe. I think British accents confuse them, they tend to use German-infused grammar and mistake that for SAE, they often mess up proper English pronunciation, they think there’s nothing to do here because we don’t consider accidentally spray-painted pieces of scrap metal and timber fine art, and because we prefer to do our own cooking here. Kelsey is Europe-curious though as he’s expressed willingness to visit Berlin, where I’m going again in November. Berlin is as much Germany though as NYC is the USA.
Oh, and they call every noodle with a hole in it “maccheroni” and they feed their kids stuff out of cardpaper boxes.
So what does this mean? Are we having a conference in Berlin in November? I am all for that, I just have to be home by Thanksgiving. I flew back one Thanksgiving Day from Amsterdam a couple of years ago, and I was never as ready for a good turkey dinner as that year, I’ll tell you that!
I can sympathise. I once sat next to a Dutch couple on a flight from Frankfurt to NYC. They were wasted even before the plane had reached the Hebrides. Flying Dutchmen are one of a kind.
NYC in October and / or Berlin in November. Your call.
