Fredrik: I actually really enjoyed movies like “Das Leben der Anderen”, “Good Bye, Lenin!” and some of the films of Werner Herzog. So I’m not dissing German art house cinema. No one in this comic is really mean on purpose, it’s just different strokes for different folks.
Relatives buy noisy toys to my 2-year-old ALL the time. Last Christmas my mother-in-law bought an extremely noisy plush dog (almost gave me a stroke). And some one bought him a damn microphone!! (Like a megaphone but also armed with horrible music and singing).
This Christmas my dad bought a noisy toy drilling machine and a noisy toy train!!
Lord have mercy on my ears!
