German vintage '50-70 semi-flex stubs and those in oblique give the real thing in On Demand line variation. Modern Oblique is a waste of money for a shadow of line variation. Being too lazy to Hunt for affordable vintage oblique pens, lets you 'hunt' for line variation instead of having it.

That's magnificent - probably something to do with the EU though. 

 

I wish I could find that word Ellen Muller wrote down - it was a classic example of German combining of words!  88 letters! Dear God!

I wonder what the German name would be if pen manufacture was started up in that well known Welsh village of

Llanfair­pwllgwyn­gyllgo­gery­chwyrn­drobwll­llanty­silio­gogo­goch ?

Or in short: Llanfair-P-G

When you actually get to the village it's sort of a disappointment.

 

Been a while since I was in Wales, at the time I could get about halfway without stumbling over my tongue.

Actually this too is a lot of words strung together

Actually it means something like: the church of our lady in the meadows with....  

I would have to look it up what it is exactly.

The local "caff" here is run by a bit of a wag.  He told me the other day that he and his wife stopped at the famous Welsh town during a short holiday.  They decided to have a snack and whilst there asked the girl behind the counter if she could pronounce the name of the place for them.

 

"Oh yes of course" she said...

 

[Wait for it]

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"Burger King."

You did well to spot that after the mistake I made; I have edited it now.

 

Whoops!

:blush:  Actually, the laugh was for the pun. I have to admit I did not catch the mistake (which?)

I would never make fun that way at someone's mistake.....

I wrote "pronounce the word" rather than "pronounce the name of the place"
