I use this blog as a soap box to preach (ahem... to talk :-) about subjects that interest me.

In 1970, the German film director and producer Rosa von Praunheim made the film Die Bettwurst. The word Bettwurst, invented by Rosa, means bed sausage, and refers to somebody who never gets out of bed.

Anyhow, I saw the film decades ago, but I still remember the words of the following little song:

Die ganze Welt ist nur ein Arsch
und wir sind seine Fürze.
Ein Jeder stinkt nach seiner Art.
Das gibt dem Leben Würze.

Here is my best translation of it:

The whole world is just an arse
and we are its farts.
Each one stinks in its own way.
This gives spices to our lives.
