Re: Groupons for prostitutes...

crazy.
When browsing through the 20min slideshow, I wondered if there was a hidden erotic groupon message behind this picture.....only to discover it was actually just "Werbung" in the slideshow

Any business, which addresses its adult customers with "du" (especially uncapitalised) should be viewed with the highest of suspicion. See the example set by Apple.

You do not think Sie is a bit too formal when you are doing the 2 hump camel thing?

I have noticed that some of the "discrete" houses in Niderdorf have coffee tables outside in the summer and serve the normal range of coffee, pastries and refreshments at normal Niederdorf prices to normal passers by and tourists. Imagine the scene that could ensue if an innocent tourist pays with a credit card only for his wife to discover he's patronised a house of ill repute ...

Where does it say that you get to hump two camels?

Or were you thinking of this:

Quote:
Bring me the camel

A Captain in the foreign legion was transferred to a desert outpost. On his orientation tour he noticed a very old, seedy looking camel tied out back of the enlisted men's barracks. He asked the Sargent leading the tour, what the camel was for.
The Sargent replied, "Well sir, it's a long way from anywhere, and the men have natural sexual urges, so when they do, uh, we have the camel."
The Captain said, "Well, if it's good for morale, then I guess it's all right with me."
After he had been at the fort for about 6 months, the Captain could not stand it anymore, so he told his Sargent, "BRING ME THE CAMEL!!!"
The Sarge shrugged his shoulders and led the camel into the Captain's quarters. The Captain got a foot stool and proceeded to have vigorous sex with the camel. As he stepped, satisfied, down from the stool and was buttoning his pants he asked the Sargent, "Is that how the enlisted men do it?"
The Sargent replied, "Well sir, they usually just use it to ride into town."

I have my forum preferences set to not display signatures, so was also totally confused about that post! I assume, now, that Treverus has a business renting out flat-chested women.

Ok. I know that restaurants are expensive here. But the coffee is not THAT expensive...
