Chicago or Calcutta, Cairo or Cologne: every city has its own character. For sure it is interesting, to describe the differences, the various moods of those cultural boxes

about BERLIN, STUTTGART and NUREMBERG – my amazon book review about the satirical lyrics of Thomas Gsella:

About BERLIN is rhymed: “Too silly for to get bread.” Who says “the capital of the loser” who talks about Berlin (near Poland). “Laconically grumbled it’s pleasant and not soaped by the general chancellor Angela Merkel-bows serving nature of which we see more and more smeared print.

About Nuremberg Argue: According to Markus Soeder, speaker of the CSU (political party), “Nuremberg is the CITY OF HUMAN RIGHTS.” No, oh no! Oh my God! But thank to Thomas Gsella and his clear brain, we read three lines below: “It is the Nazi Party City … ” (die Reichs-Parteitags-Stadt). Yes, talking should not be only dialectical but also a correct reversal of the reality (and history which is a part of reality we cannot delete). People like Markus Soeder, who is the speaker of the actually leading conservative party in Germany CDU / CSU with chancellor Angela Merkel often says quite stupid things. We are not as silly as he and his vasalls think (ex-defense minister zu Guttenberg, a swindler and master of plagiarism).

About STUTTGART you can read the easily solved quiz question: “Where police shoots on street demonstrations with water canons, hitting and destroying eyes of retired persons, so that they have the chance to look inside their bad souls?” (About the “STUTTGART 21” police attacks vs. a peaceful crowd, demonstrating against a planned too expensive train station architecture (Stuttgart Haupt-Bahnhof). Thanks to the author Thomas Gsella! His book gives hope, that intelligence has not emigrated from Germany completely leaving us alone with swindlers only …

meine amazon Buch-Rezension zu :
“Ihre Stadt” / Reiner Schönheit Glanz und Licht: Ihre Stadt im Schmähgedicht von Thomas Gsella

Über BERLIN wird gereimt: “Zu blöd zum Brötchenholen. Wer Hauptstadt der Versager sagt, der meint Berlin (bei Polen).” Das ist angenehm lakonisch gemurrt und nicht von der allgemeinen Merkel-dienerischen Bücklings-Natur überseift, von der man immer mehr Gedrucktes besudelt sieht. Über NÜRNBERG wird räsonniert: “Nicht nur laut Markus Söder ist sie STADT DER MENSCHENRECHTE.” Gottseidank liest man drei Zeilen weiter die nicht nur dialektische sondern auch korrekte Umkehr des Urteils, das von den Füßen auf den dämlichen Kopf gestellt worden war: “Es ist die Reichsparteitagsstadt…” Eben man soll sich von Markus Söder und ähnlichen Vasallen nicht den Verstand vollends verdrehen lassen, obwohl immer wieder neue Guttenbergs auftauchen werden, die uns Tomaten auf die Augen kloppen wollen. Die heißen dann eben Friedrich. Über STUTTGART kann man die leicht zu lösende Quiz-Frage lesen: “Wo schießt man Rentnern Augen aus, damit sie in sich gehen?” Vielen Dank, Thomas Gsella, dein Buch gibt Hoffnung, dass aus Deutschland der Verstand nicht gänzlich abgewandert ist und nur noch Hochstapelei übrig blieb…
