It is that time of year again, so this week's article is:

OKTOBERFEST IN MUNICH - FUN FACTS

It's called "Oktoberfest", although most of it takes place in September, an angel on hiatus from heaven attends every year, once it was opened by a Mayor shouting "I'zapt os" instead of "O'zapft is", (it's tapped), and that was before any beer was consumed. Here are some Oktoberfest Fun Facts.

And for the "real story" behind the Oktoberfest:

The Word This Week is something anyone who is thinking of throwing their top garments onto "Aloisius the Angel", all about him in the article, might have............but most do not I would think.

WASCHBRETTBAUCH - known in English as a six-pack.

It comes from an old-fashioned "Waschbrett" - the flat washing board with wooden slats which dirty clothes used to be rubbed on, before the advent of washing machines and detergent etc.
