Berlitz for Berlin

If you are headed to Germany (and, judging from your lederhosen, you are), be sure to lug along a copy of Langenscheidts Konversationsbuch English-Deutsch. (“Langenscheidts Konversationsbuch” is german for “Humorous Book Review Can Be Found Here.”) Some of the indispensable phrases found therein include “She tasted the gravy critically,” “This is the least convincing excuse you could offer,” and the all-purpose “Good wrist action is his greatest asset.”
