Rainier Wolfcastle in “Mein Bratwurst” – Video

According to various Simpsons episodes, Wolfcastle began his acting career as a child in Austria, appearing on painfully long television commercials advertising bratwurst. F-R-I-T-Z S-C-H-N-A-C-K-E-N-P-F-E-F-F-E-R-H-A-U-S-E-N I’m posting the video from Youtube but at times it gets removed so let me know if that happens. Lyrics to The Fritz Schnackenpfefferhausen Bratwurst Song : Rainier Wolfcastle: Mein bratwurst has a first name, It’s F-R-I-T-Z, Mein bratwurst has a second name, It’s S-C-H-N-A-C-K-E-N-P-F-E-F-F-E-R-H-A-U-S-E-N.

My Modem is Broken

Below are two posts recently spotted on the Winston-Salem craigslist. I used to hear people calling their computers “modems” back in the early 00’s, but now it’s 2010 and this is too funny. Re: Dell Computer Parts (Anywhere) Back to computer terms class for you!! The computer is NOT a modem. That’s a part located inside of the box!!! What is it with the uneducated calling a computer a cpu, a modem, or a hard drive? These are all parts located inside of the box. They are not interchangeable terms. The correct name for the tower is system unit. Most people just call the box a tower or computer. Correct your post!! via http://winstonsalem.craigslist.org/sys/1534005448.html Dell Computer Parts (Winston Salem) Dell Desktop I got the modem repaired and the business put a dvd reader card in it, and I am tired of fooling with it. Parts that are with it… -Working Monitor -Mouse -Keyboard -Modem (Needs New Driver, and could sell parts inside of it) -Has windows XP on it now Make offer *Cash Offer via http://winstonsalem.craigslist.org/sys/1533947923.html
