So, we have a few pictures from our pub crawl, but not as many as our other post on our general shenanigans in Germany. Just a few, though!
We ate at the first place we went to, which is where we took these food shots. We figured that, if we’d be drinking a lot, we should fill up our tummies first so we don’t get sloshed. Soo Zee disagrees with this strategy, though, and things that eating while you drink keeps you drunk longer. I’m pretty sure we had this discussion on another blog post, didn’t we? Anyhow, that first place we ate as WAS SO GOOD! The mashed potatoes were freakishly delicious. We almost yelled from being so happy at eating them. Our waiter, though, didn’t see eye to eye with us. We has a giant bald man, with a huge gut and a very gruff voice. He looks like he’s seen some things before, like he’s killed a few people by strangling them with one hand. When we told him that we thought the mashed potatoes were great, he didn’t say thank you, or even agree with us. He just said “no,” and walked away. It’s not that he didn’t understand us. He was fluent in English. He just…said no. Hmm.
Also, at our second bar, we saw a gigantic freaking dog. Probably one of the biggest dogs I’ve ever seen in my life. We were walking upstairs to the second floor of the bar, and the dog was walking down the stairs. I immediately became stupid giddy like I do whenever I see dogs. I think this picture is fairly accurate. I asked the owner if I could pet it and they agreed, and I marvelled at the size of this beast, and pet it as it was wiggly and happy for the attention. I asked the owner about the breed, and they said it was some kind of German Puma hunter. PUMA HUNTER?! Yes, this dog kills pumas. The owner was a bit sad, though, when he said that – unfortunately – there aren’t many pumas in Germany anymore. I said “do you know why?” inquisitively, and he didn’t know. I said “because your dog killed them all.” THAT THING WAS HUGE! But it wasn’t a killer. It was a sweetheart.
You can see it in the bloopers at the bottom of the post :D
More importantly, I really, really liked dog culture in Germany. Dogs were everywhere. Every coffee shop or restaurant I was in had at least a dog or two sitting politely with their owner. Dogs were taken everywhere, even giant puma killing dogs to tiny German pubs. And all of the dogs are well behaved. I didn’t see any gotdamn yappy dogs or anxious dogs or any annoying dogs at all. Korea has lots of annoying dogs. I think it’s because people barely walk their dogs here. Not all people, mind you, but many. Dogs are often left at home all day, and they don’t have a good outlet for their energy, nor do they have training from owners that take them places. Germany, man: great place for dogs. They’re doing it right.
Anyhow, I hope you liked the video. We had a great time filming it, and it was definitely one of our best memories from Germany, and from the Ooh Euro Nasty Tour altogether. We have some extra scenes as well, if you’d like more!
Lastly, we’ve got a few German videos to publish, including one later tonight, and a special WTF tomorrow. WOOT!
