My website is currently having a holiday, but will return like the $6,000,000 man.  Bigger, stronger, etc.

In the meantime, why not take pity on a starving author and visit my book sales page at http://stores.lulu.com/gyppo1

A few daft definitions:

Reintarnation:  Coming back again as a Hillbilly.

Kindred:  Fear of family.

Dictionary:  (Dick-shunnery)  Lesbian behaviour.

I used to have a whole list of these, but this late at night these are all I can remember.

Can you imagine it?

Frocks  -  Should be FROGS surely if there is a picture of a frog on the advert?  It's the way the Germans (Austrians)  pronounce 'Frogs'   Sounds like FROCKS so they wrote it that way!  I think it's an error.

I was curious enough to visit their website.  Seems like the blue frog is big business.

The German for frog is spelt frosch, so quite possibly the signwriter was writing how it sounds rather than how it looks.

Babelfish did a fair (undersandable) translation of their homepage.

ICEFROCKS is the quality mark for professional Convenience ice - in particular ice cube and Crushed ice - in practical taking along packings. ICEFROCKS stands for ice-cooled freshness with the blue frog as unmistakable brand name. ICEFROCKS it gives everywhere in Germany with approximately 6,000 partners - predominant at gas stations, with beverage markets and in the food retail trade. ICEFROCKS high-quality Convenience ice - ice cube, Crushed ice, Scherbeneis - with one of the largest and most modern industrial plants in Germany produces. ICEFROCKS the certified ice products supply European-wide at private and corporate customers (bulk purchaser, dealer, big consumer, gastronomer, Caterer,

I still don't know what Scherbeneis is though.  Babelfish often jibs at single out-of-context words.  Anyone out there who knows German who can enlighten me?  It's going to bug me now until I know ;-)
