In a bar, under the sea

Q: What do Dutch beer and making love in a canoe have in common?
A: They are both fucking close to water.

(Was this good enough?)


Dutch people, beer, etc, are people, beer, etc, from the Netherlands, also known as Holland. Dutchland does not exist, but Deutschland is Germany in German. Netherlands means Low Countries -- as in below sea level -- which, we learned at school once upon a time, are Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg. Sounds like the Dutch are claiming all three countries' territories for themselves, by calling themselves the Netherlands! Shame on them!


Kamagurka is a Belgian cartoonist and this is not his best joke, but Jillian will understand:

Can't we just stay friends?


Still accepting ideas, what to call our invention, see previous post! Meanwhile, we hope we won't need our umbrella for a while (with or without lights, music, water cooler, coffee machine installed). We hope for a wonderful, sunny weekend, for us and for you too, of course! One more day to go! Hurrah!

LOL. Oh yea, I understood. I just wish that in English! Was he arranging a "get together" for later or something? Inquiring minds and all that!

Kimba The White Lioness said...

Awww, naughty, naught sheepy! Or not? Maybe it's just my dirty, dirty mind!

Hmmm.... your invention...

...have been thinking about a name... but also other PRACTICAL uses for an umbrella w/ spokes that light up when opened...

Have to think on it more. Back in a bit!

Well, if it has a shelf already, you may as well have a coffee machine on it. And ambient lighting....and possibly a fold out chair.
A name though, that's tough. I'll get the toons on to it!

Roufa Tav Gosou & Mimi Lass said...


Superfrogtastic name, Frog! Thank you!

And it should DEFINITELY include a system to hold itself. As Bimmy commented (see previous post), holding an umbrella is utterly irritating.

Production? Can't we just sit aside and cash in on the idea while someone else is working on it?


Kimba, it's probably both!


Jillian, we lost you. Who's arranging a get together?


By the way, translation of the first cartoon, Heineken Light:

It was a heavy decision.

Meaning, difficult.
