Eliza Loomis ’15
brings you this message from Heidi the cross-eyed opossum, a nationally revered figure in Germany:

Think you might want to live in German Haus?

Do you have an undying affection for words with upwards of 60 letters? (Rindfleischetikettierungsüberwachungsaufgabenübertragungsgesetz, am I right?!)

Do you have a tortured relationship with Sigmund Freud (not to mention your mother)?

Do you think wurst is actually…the best?
