I, too, loved all three of your books. Now, I'm ready for another one! Get cracking! LOL! The above is another great strip (multiple laughs), but I also notice the unusually good humor and intelligence of the other posters on your site. Surprisingly nice...

Bought the BOOK from create space. Ship to South Africa is $10 (if you can wait, and then $10 for the book). I don't want to read the sample, as I will only get the book late next month, and knowing what's waiting will drive me insane with anticipation. Cant wait.

Myself, I'm a big fan of braunschweiger [liver sausage]. My grandpa was of good German stock. Blame him.

Personally, I'm interested in seeing attractive women in dirndls. The food is secondary.

Bought your book on Amazon as a Kindle thing - in the middle of it. I was wondering if it makes any difference to you where or in which format it is bought - do you get more if bought in place x or format y?

Mugician13: A Braunschweiger is a smoked Mettwurst (see above) with onions (and quite delicious). Liver sausage is just that (Leberwurst) - and also quite delicious ^^

Panel 1 contains my least favorite image of Scott. Just had to get away from the German food thing for a second.

Leberwurst would be called "white pudding" on the isles (and Blutwurst "black pudding") by the way. At least those are the names I encountered in Ireland and England.
Scotsman probably go for haggis instead, which is really quite similar to liverwurst (yet another English name for it. Really, how many do you need?). As in: Nearly identical. Which made me quite a happy man. :D

I've explained to my sons that sausage originated as a way to make food out of the bits and scraps that nobody could face eating as is (or was). The fact that humans were able to turn it into a delicious food that you'd like to eat even given a choice is testimony to human ingenuity.

A friend's German grandmother made sauerkraut for me; it took a few weeks from me mentioning it to it being ready.

It was absolutely delicious: crisp and sharp and tasty.

I have never since been able to find sauerkraut that was anything like what she made. :-( The shop-bought stuff is soggy, bland and nasty.

I suspect sauerkraut might be like Yorkshire puddings, a "food-of-the-gods" item: fantastic when made by hand with love, but evil when mass-produced.

@Kevin A Kunreuther Bugs Bunny's already done that joke.

The food in Germany is actually way better than food in America. Even Mexico has better food than the US. In fact, the only country in this hemisphere with worse food than us is Canada. The only place in Europe with worse food than us is the UK. You can find British and Welsh and Irish pubs in the US, but they don't sell their cuisine. They don't recommend you order it without a pint, and when you get a pint, they recommend more pints.
