Mirror Image Edutainment, Alan John Mayer
In an America where el Cinco de Mayo is more celebrated than el Cuatro de julio, I feel it is important to acknowledge Germany’s contributions to the world in order of importance, least to upcoming most:
1. I acknowledge Mercedes Diamler, after whom the first automobile in the world was named.
2. I acknowledge Marlene Dietrich, who left Germany at just the time most Germans later wished they had, (and whose braids could not be pulled tightly enough).
3. I acknowledge Nivea, the cream that has kept men and women worldwide feeling soft and gentle, (though most men are too ‘manly’ to admit to it).
4. I acknowledge Lufthansa for taking a bird’s name and turning it into an multi-billion Euro international airline of style.
5. I acknowledge Angela Märkel, not for bringing Europe closer together through the introduction of the Euro, after Germany broke Europe apart in the first two world wars, but for the way Angie has held the Euro together, thereby strengthening European unity and peace.
6. I acknowledge Alan (Ober)Mayer ✝,
author of A Boy Alone, Victory Over Self,
soon to be translated into one hundred languages, beginning with
Ein Junge Allein — Sieg Über Sich Selbst.
I would like to take this moment to thank Alan for his upcoming contribution to the world of edutainment.
Amen, ‘uf Deutsch jesagt.
