Dunder and blitzen ejaculated old unkel. However the most interesting part of his tale is to come. With one of his Pretzel Brockers Buegeleisen smile on his face he says raus mit die Katz. I ain’t had a rabbit for two years and that is enough for today. He says; he and Joe Bird fed 25 jack rabbits last winter and I don’t want a single one to be killed this fall. In an artless simplicity of his unfeathered mind the poor miser was consuming a chew of tobacco which perhaps a horse trader discarded last summer.
