Come to weird and wacky Germany!

I happened to come across this travel site on one of my recent excursions around the internet.

Of all travel writing about Germany, it is the only one I’ve seen that makes Germany sound like a cool and hip place to visit. In fact a positive den of drink, drugs and vice.

This is drunkblogging at its finest. By the simple trick of feeding the text into (probably) Babelfish, running it through five languages and letting it pop out back in a form of scrambled literary English, it has achieved what no other site has ever done. It has made Germany a must see. One American friend I showed it to immediately said:

Everyone — get in the car! We’re going to Germany dammit!”

As for me, I am inspired. I plan to move into a foppish castle at the earliest opportunity.
I also intend to store the following phrases for future use:
– where every crossway offers free-flowing beer up the wazoo
– though this is rattling rare
– be delighted with the long opportunities for fleshly activities
– whether for meliorate or worse
