    No, no, no, this is a side job so no one is disqualified. Except for Tommi: he already read the book! In German! So no books for you Tommi!

    We forgot to tell the winners are to be broadcast in the Deutsche Welle, wearing leaderhosen and a wet t-shirt. We’ll only pick contestants that are clean!

    Bring it on! I happen to look great in leaderhosen (been there, done that), I’ve been working on my man-boobs all winter, so count me in for a wet t-shirt and as far as clean . . . check out my band-aid!

    I had to look. Nana is 74 ( . . . baby, take your teeth out). 🙂

    1. Rod Sewart also ruined… I mean sang, Tom Traubert’s Blues.

    2. Naturally there are too many songs to pick just one favourite, but today I’ll plump for the wonderful Step Right Up from ‘Early Tom Waits’ and from ‘Late Tom’ I’ll take T’Aint No Sin, with William Burroughs on vocals from The Black Rider.

    3. I believe it’s either ‘GOOD MOR-NING’ said very slowly and well enunciated, or ‘Guten Morgen’.

    Jolly good, and may I say what a lovely gesture it is giving prizes away…
