That there writin' looks like what mah Great-great Aunt Tillie used ta write. She wrote real good, only nobody could read it any. She'd read it to us only we couldn't unnerstand it any, what with her using words like "Scheissheiss" and "Generalstaatsverordnetenversammlungen" amd "Alterthumswissenschaften" and "Kinderbewahrungsanstalten" and "Unabhaengigkeitserklaerungen" and "Wiedererstellungbestrebungen" and
"Waffenstillstandsunterhandlungen." Sometimes you'd sorta maybe understand something that was kinda on the edge of yer mind, kinda ticklin' fer meaning, but there weren't none. So only mein Bruddder learnt any German and the other two of use stuck to languages folks could unnerstand, like Profane and Obscene and Vulgar.
