I have no idea what you're talking about, subby.

And yet...really, old subby.  Look down there.  If any of those patients on ventilators stopped moving forever, would you feel any pity?  If I offered you twenty thousand pounds for each patient that stopped moving, would you really, old subby, tell me to keep my money, or would you calculate how many patients you could afford to spare?

One of the best ferris wheels I've ever been on, it has very solid wooden train-like box cars that creak like they'll fall apart at any moment.

Let me introduce you to the movie that inspired my name, and the scene to which I was referring:

Welles managed to tick people off in two countries with a single stroke by chiming in on that dear timepiece. The cuckoo clock is historically a product of Germany

Diamond Joe Biden: Why do I suddenly hear zither music?


Back before the pandemic (and again after it's over) I played autoharp in a local German folk/oompah band.
It's a simplified zither, and I really really need to learn that music.  And I heard it as the intro/outro to Roger Ebert's show so many times, even though I've never watched the whole movie.

(Autoharp is great for chords, you just press a button and strum, so it was widely sold both in the part of the East Coast where I grew up and also out here in California for elementary school music teachers who wanted to accompany singing but didn't play guitar or violin or something else hard to learn.  It also gets used by country music people like Ma Maybelle Carter, and if you get fancy you can play individual notes, but it's easier for fast and loud chords.

My main instrument is mountain dulcimer, which is a fretted zither that lets you play melodies and chords in 1-2 keys, but needs to be retuned to get other keys, and most German stuff changes keys too many times in a single tune for it to work, even by picking up your other dulcimer, so I either play the autoharp or uke instead.)
