Trink Das Wasser Nicht

Plenty of water for politicians


Near Frankenmuth, Michigan, there’s a large German-speaking, Lutheran population.

A farmer walking down a country road notices a man drinking from his pond with his hand.

The farmer shouted: “Trink das wasser nicht. Die kuhen haben dahin gesheissen.
Which means: “Don’t drink the water, the cows have crapped in it.

The man shouted back, “I’m from Washington D.C. and I’m up here campaigning for Obama’s health care plan - I can’t understand you. Please speak in English.

The farmer replied, “Use both hands; you’ll get more water that way.”
