Over to the right in the rest of the Goats column you will see a schnitzelbank which shares some similarities as far as physical appearance goes.. Lena Pregnant at 71? Lena went to the doctor's office where she was seen by one of the younger doctors. After about four minutes in the examination room, she burst out screaming as she ran down the hall. The older doctor, Dr. Sven, stopped her and asked what the problem was, and Lena told him her story. After listening, he had her Weekly Sudoku Solution On Page 8 b=x::':'::'m:':m:z':':J:*'s" 20/0" @ sit down and relax in another room. Dr. Sven marched down the hallway back to where the young doctor was writing on his clipboard. 'What da heck is da matter with you?!" Dr. Sven demanded. "Poor Lena is 7I years old, has four grown children and seven grandchildren, and you told her she was pregnant?" The younger doctor :continued writing and without looking up said, "Does she still have the hiccups?" Goat Vs Schnitzel laying on the ground for a while. It knew then, that the key to wiener schnitzel was not in the wiener but in the schnitzel. The Goat went back to the books. It discovered that Wiener Schnitzel was a traditional Austrian dish. It was made with boneless meat, smacked thin with mallet. It was then coated with bread crumbs and fried. While schnitzel can be made with a variety of meats including pork, turkey, and even alligator and haggis, but true Wiener Schnitzel is made with veal. As a matter of fact, it's the law there that only schnitzel made with veal can be called Wiener Schnitzel. When looking into the origins of schnitzel many schnitzel historians believe it originated in Italy. Milan to be specific. However, if you delve deeper into the world of schnitzel you find that Scotland has collops, which is like schnitzel, we have chicken flied steak, or country fried steak here in the U.S and many other places you go in the world, there is some form of breaded and fried meat made in a similar manner. The Goat and Vinny, putting their heads together, theorized that schnitzel originated spontaneously in several parts of the world, at the same time. An act of God, so to speak. Schnitzel was simply meant to be. Vinny even speculated that schnitzel could somehow be proof of Ensteins unified field theory. The Goat began thinking about a song it had heard many times when it had been a member of the French underground in WWII. It was called the Schnitzelbank song. A beer drinking song, it was often sung by occupying soldiers in French taverns that the Goat had hung out in while trying to gather intelligence information. The Goat didn't understand German so wasn't very handy at gathering intelligence, but 2 Tundra by Chad Carpenter 6 9 2 6 3 11m Official Comic Ship of the Animal's Republic of Robbin Continued from Page 1 it did have a good memory and the song remained in its head. The Goat began to wonder, didthe schnitzelbank song have anything to do with wiener schnitzel? More research revealed that other than being a fun song, that one might begin singing after a meal of wiener schnitzel, washed down by a good number of beers, it wasn't a place to save schnitzel, or have anything to do with wiener schnitzel at all. Schnitzelbank literally means "scrap bench" or "chip bench". Probably the closest relationship would be that you might use scraps of meat to make wiener schnitzel. However a Schnitzelbank is a wood working tool It was used in Germany before the industrial revolution and also used during colonial times in New England and the Appalachians. A Schnitzelbanl also known as a Shaving Horse, in this neck of the woods. Called a shaving horse on this continent it was used to make a variety of things from making ax handles and wooden rakes, to hay forks and walking sticks. A Schnitzelbank is also a short rhyming verse. A lot of times instruments are used to accompany a Schnitzelbank. Each verse starts with a certain topic and ends with a funny twist. The more beer consumed, the funnier each verse becomes. Which brings us back to the beginning, with Vinny Mouse singing the Schnitzelbank song and rolling on the ground with laughter. Everything was right, the world made sense and I found myself craving a chicken fried steak dinner. 9 8 9 3 4 7 56 8 4 1 3 8 49 79 5 2567 Nit in the b;enk s n  gift, making sure na, ev row, column d 3-by,3 box nclude.s all ditd 1 rouh 9. !.
