Is he housebroken?
We have enough cat litter here to take care of that - and a cat that will take care of him!
Favourite German joke:
"There are two phrases I do not want to hear in my class!", growled the teacher. "The phrases are voll krass, and affen geil".
Little Friedbert at the back of the class put his hand up:'please, which phrases do you not want to hear?'
I just cannot think of suitable English phrases, any suggestions?

@Fietsrad, I think the original English version was, 'One is swell, the other is lousy.' This dates from the turn of the 20th Century.
Apologies to any actual Karens/Karyns we might have on this forum. I'm sure it's just your name, not your nature.
We know a Karin (I've known her for even longer than I know my wife - K. is married to a very good friend).
But this particular Karin really does fit the stereotype.
@sarabyrd was almost Karen...
At my school most of the girls were named after a train station in Sachsen-Anhalt, Linda!

I subscribed to the free mail from Bund der Steuerzahler, Taxpayer's Union, it is quite entertaining, reports how a stone weighing 465 tonnes was moved to make it more interesting for tourists. I did see that the Bund invites donations, I think I pay enough taxes already.
I ordered the Black Book too, full of stories of how money has been wasted. Or not wasted, many of the reports are open to interpretation.

If only more people would tend to their grits and not to the eternal maunderings of #45.
